City of Oxnard Contract Reopener Yields Gains


SEIU Local 721 members fought at the bargaining table to help win a fair pension reopener agreement that worked for them and their families.

On August 2nd and 9th, members cast their ballots and voted by a strong majority to ratify the Tentative Agreement. Member voices are powerful and they make a difference!

The Oxnard City Council will vote on whether to adopt this TA early next month.
