Bob Schoonover’s Statement on LA and Ventura area fires

SEIU 721’s president and members urge residents to heed evacuation warnings, and thank public sector frontline and service providers for their heroic work.  

Los Angeles, CA—“The wildfires raging throughout Los Angeles County and Ventura County are having a big impact on our union. Many SEIU 721 members live and work near the affected areas, like the Olive View Medical Center in Sylmar, or are in the midst of evacuations – like members in Ventura County, where the Thomas Fire has already charred 45,000 acres.”

“As always, SEIU 721 is here for you. No matter what region you work or live in, members with questions about benefits and services available to them should not hesitate to call Member Connection at (877) 721-4YOU for the most accurate, up-to-date information.”

Bob Schoonover, President SEIU 721
