City of Riverside Strike Authorization Vote
Enough is Enough.
Unfilled positions. High turnover. Long hours. More than 2 years without a raise. Bargain in bad faith, non-responsiveness at the table, and denying our right to access worksites. That’s what the City of Riverside has put us through.
Enough is enough.
When the City asked us to make sacrifices during the pandemic, SEIU members did so without hesitation because we believed it was right for the sake of the City and, more importantly, for the public we serve. We took on these sacrifices despite the City violating the law and imposing furloughs.
We can’t allow this to stand. We have to stand up to the City.
