LA County Bargaining Update 9/28

LA County Bargaining Update

INTENSIVE BARGAINING IS UNDERWAY. LA County Members vow to bargain around the clock to get it done! 

Latest Bargaining Report: 

1. Health Benefits — SEIU 721 made it clear, LA County must guarantee full paid health and dental as a baseline. 

2. Health Benefits — LA County insists on passing cost to workers. SEIU 721 demands LA County offset any costs passed on to workers through wage increases. 

3. Wages — LA County proposing a 7% raise that will completely disappear with their proposed health costs. So SEIU 721 members said “Nope! We are not here to negotiate a pay cut.”

Stay tuned! Bargaining is set to continue through the night! 

Current as of 5 p.m., 9/28/18.

Benefits and at least a 12% cost increase are a must. Average cost of living increase has been 4% per year; plus with minimum wage increasing our lowest paid employees would be better off working at McDonald’s or Starbucks because they will be getting paid almost the same.

Thank you for all your hard work! Fight for our healthcare benefits, whatever pay increase they offer will not offset the rising cost of healthcare every year. You have our support.

Thank you for fighting for us and our family. Tell them to take a pay cut since it is ok for us to take a cut. There salaries are probably outrageous anyway.

1 & 2 implies that the union agreed to a frozen baseline of current. Now fighting to cover increase via an additional pay. What? Terrible move. At this rate, we will end up paying more and more out of pocket. The increased coverage for healthcare cost should have been part of the deal to start.

No compromising, full benefits and wage increase! I work hard everyday, love working with the clients, but the County needs to recognize and accommodate the contributions we make. Compared to other counties, Los Angeles falls way short and our cost of living is higher. Not fair.
