Simi Valley Members Make Their Mark at City Council

On September 11, the SEIU Local 721 Bargaining Committee met with City Management. The City just offered members a zero wage increase! Watch for the SEIU 721 Simi Valley Bargaining Update flyer in your workplace for information on next steps.

On September 9, SEIU 721 members in Simi Valley came out to the Simi Valley City Council meeting to let the Council know we are ready and united for bargaining.

SEIU 721 members told the council that members have been providing more and more services with fewer resources.

General Unit Members have stepped up to help the City weather the storm more than once, and now it’s time for the City to make things right.”
-Nancy Fisher, President of the SEIU 721 Simi Valley Chapter Board, Secretary in City of Simi Valley

I support the reasonable proposals that were put forth by the SEIU 721 bargaining committee.”
-Steve Perez, SEIU 721 Bargaining Team member and Streets Maintenance Worker III for the City of Simi Valley
