In case you missed it, we recently reached an accord on a LA City Contract (MOU) Amendment 2020-2022 (VIEW CONTRACT AMENDMENT SUMMARY), that will achieve significant savings for the City and eliminate layoffs and furloughs this fiscal year along with added protections against future furloughs. This agreement was made possible by the strength of your bargaining team Chairs and members and the solidarity of working together as a part of the Coalition of City Unions.

Can I still vote in person or at my worksite?
You can cast your vote via mail. Mail packets are being sent to all members. All votes by mail must be sent back and must arrive at SEIU 721 offices by 9PM on January 27th. Please note COVID-19 pandemic has caused frequent delays in the postal service. We recommend you vote online. If you did not receive a mail packet you can call 877-721-4968 to request ballot or obtain further assistance.
There will be limited opportunities to vote in person due to COVID19 and locations will be posted on this website, please stay tuned.
A YES vote closes the door on layoffs and furloughs this fiscal year and holds the line against additional furloughs in the near future. A YES vote also protects your salary increases, adds paid personal time and avoids the worst effects of unilaterally imposed furloughs on our membership.
A NO vote will give way to 11 furloughs this year, plus an unknown number of additional furloughs next year and will keep the door wide-open to possible layoffs and furloughs as this economic crisis develops.
The chairs of the bargaining team strongly recommend a YES vote.
