SEIU Local 721 President’s Report for October 2016


In accordance with our SEIU Local 721 by-laws, it is my honor as your President, to submit this report to you on our Union’s activities. To read the full report, please use this link.

On August 31st, SEIU 721 partnered with L.A. County to host the second countywide Los Angeles Health Agency Town Hall with the newly created Los Angeles Health Partnership. The L.A. Health Partnership brings together L.A. County’s newly integrated health agencies, doctors, interns, residents and employee organizations to develop a plan for transforming healthcare in L.A. County.

I was very skeptical at first. We are a labor organization. “Kicking ass for the working class” is in our blood. But so far, the partnership is helping us reach our goal of becoming the provider of choice in L.A. County.

Read the rest of this month’s President’s Report to find out how and why this partnership is helping us reach our goals.
