PERB Fact Finder Agrees: We’re Worth More!

After a months-long fact-finding process, an impartial fact finder appointed by the Public Employment Relations Board has found what we’ve known all along – the hardworking Riverside County public servants of SEIU 721 deserve more than the “regressive” last, best and final offer presented by the County.

The County’s arguments against treating employees fairly don’t hold water. In fact, the report found that “…all of this time, energy and money could be better spent if everyone could reach an agreement and simply get back to the business of taking care of the public.

The report went on to recommend:

  • A new MOU through July 2019
  • 4% across the board raises
  • 1% additional raises for RNs
  • Elimination of almost all takeaways
  • A “Me Too” clause
