On Wednesday, Oct. 30, SEIU 721 City of Riverside General Unit members voted to approve the tentative agreement that was reached by the bargaining team with City management.
The tentative agreement is expected to go before the City Council for approval in December. The three year contract, which covers the General Unit, includes increases in salaries and employer contribution to healthcare.
“For over six months our SEIU 721 Riverside City Chapter bargaining team worked diligently in negotiating with City Management to come to an agreement that recognizes our hard working families and the economic recovery that our community is still experiencing. The team is happy that our members have ratified the agreement and we look forward to continuing an open dialogue with management to build a positive and safe environment for our members.”
– Lisa Munoz, SEIU 721 Riverside City Chapter Bargaining Team Chair and Fire Safety Inspector II
