Bargaining Has Begun

Your SEIU Local 721 bargaining committee has begun formal talks with Los Angeles County aimed at reaching an agreement on a one-year contract. On Thursday, May 13, the bargaining committee will meet with the County’s budget chief to discuss the County’s financial condition. After that, the union will submit its initial economic proposals. But right from the start, your bargaining committee has put the County on notice about what SEIU 721 members deserve and expect:

  • Heroes Pay For ALL NOW – a lump sum bonus for all SEIU 721 members effective July 1, 2021.
  • General Salary Increase – An across-the-board raise to offset increases in the cost-of-living effective October 1, 2021.
  • Health Benefits – an increase in the County’s Options contribution sufficient to fully cover the cost of Delta Dental plus any HMO of the employee’s choice.

In addition, the bargaining committee is working on proposals to address job security, telework, family leave, holidays, and other county-wide issues.

Support your bargaining committee, and our fight for Heroes Pay for All!

Join a Unity Action at your workplace during the week of May 17-21 and pick up your Heroes United campaign gaiter!

How can we have a 36 hour work week- meaning the 12 hour shifts. Add get paid for 40 hours.

There have been numerous times I have been asked this.
The County needs to change a few if their issues.
Also, with the 12 hour shifts, we need to be recognized for 12 hour Holiday pay.
The Respiratory Department
Needs to have more step raises.
