L.A. County offers 1% per year over next 3 years. We say: 3% is an insult!

On Aug. 16, L.A. County negotiators finally made a salary offer: 1% per year for the next 3 years, despite the fact that the cost of living in Los Angeles is currently rising at a rate of 4% a year! We say, “3% is an insult!”

Coupled with their proposed freeze on Options healthcare benefits contributions, these proposals would leave L.A. County employees with significantly smaller paychecks (and they promise to impact our loved ones’ coverage, too).

The cost of our medical plans goes up each year. If L.A. County freezes its Options contribution, the Flex Earnings in our paychecks will be reduced by hundreds of dollars per month and thousands of dollars per year!

These proposals are insulting to us, the workforce that provides quality services throughout L.A. County’s 4,712 square-miles to more than 11 million residents, 365 days a year. But we aren’t deterred. We know what we have to do!

Make plans NOW to join thousands of your fellow SEIU 721 members on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 – because there’s going to be a SHOWDOWN at the L.A. County Board of Supervisors meeting. Just text SHOWDOWN to 31996 so you can RSVP (and claim your free bandana!). Together, we will deliver the message, loud and clear …

Didn’t we sponsor most of the board of supervisors? 10% over 3y makes the most sense.

10 percent over 3 years is less then cost of living. Its going up 4.1 percent every year . In 3 years well make less then we do now . 12.5 is the union proposal.
