It’s Time to Break Down Inequities in Santa Barbara County

sb-county-members-web.jpgThe SEIU Local 721 Santa Barbara County bargaining team held a meet and confer with County negotiators on July 9, 2014. They reviewed pay inequities for two job series, Social Workers and Career Employment Specialists.

We were able to meet on this because of the language we won in our last reopener.

“This inequity meet and confer process is important. We want to keep the best social workers in Santa Barbara County.”
-Laurie Lee, social worker, County of Santa Barbara

The team submitted a request for information and presented the County with an initial proposal.

Next steps

The County will review our proposal, and we will meet with negotiators on August 27.
