Clinics and Nonprofits

Representing members who work for Clinics and Nonprofits throughout Southern California.

We won a tremendous victory by championing quality, affordable healthcare for all Americans!

When tens of millions were threatened with the loss of their healthcare coverage, hundreds of thousands were threatened with the loss of their jobs, and tens of thousands were threatened with the loss of their lives, we fought back!

When we fight we win!

Join us on 3/23 for a Day of Action to protect jobs & health:

On Thursday, March 23rd, SEIU 721 members are taking the day off for a Day of Action to protect jobs and health care.


We did it! Steve Knight CD25 Town Hall in Palmdale on March 4th - Doors open @ 7:45 AM

Because we put the pressure on, Congressman Steve Knight will hold a town hall on Saturday, March 4th at the Chimbole Cultural Center in Palmdale!

Processions & Vigils to Protect Healthcare in Lancaster & Fullerton

In a peaceful demonstration, concerned patients, providers and community members walked from 38th St W and Paddock Way, to Knight's Lancaster home, and from Hiltscher Park to Royce's Fullerton home, on Thursday evening, to deliver a clear message to the Congressmen about the harm they have wrought.

Emergency Processions & Vigils in Fullerton & Lancaster on February 23

Ed Royce and Steve Knight refuse to meet with us, so we have to take our stories to their doorsteps.  


Congressmen Royce and Knight voted to defund and repeal our country's healthcare system without a plan to replace it. This means all of us are going to pay more for fewer benefits and less coverage.


Because Congressmen Royce and Knight voted to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, 5 million in California will lose health coverage, and 334,000 in the Golden State will lose jobs.


With no coverage but the emergency room, every year, 43,956 Americans will die.

Anti-worker. Anti-union. Pro-corporation. Pro-1%. Gorsuch is wrong for the Supreme Court, and wrong for America!

Donald Trump attacked us when he nominated Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. 


In the words of SEIU International President, Mary Kay Henry, "this is a step backwards for every American who wants a good job, the opportunity for a better life for their family, and a real voice in our economy and democracy."


If Gorsuch is confirmed, the Supreme Court will rule against the communities we serve by gutting the public sector, silencing worker voice, and doing away with collective bargaining.

MASSIVE #Fight4Health LOS ANGELES RALLY DEFENDS HEALTH CARE FOR 
MILLIONS OF CALIFORNIANS WHO ARE TARGETS OF TRUMP AND GOP CONGRESS

 

Los Angeles - Hundreds of Los Angeles-area health care workers, nurses, advocates, patients, and seniors were joined Tuesday by Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León and Senate Health Committee Chairman Ed Hernandez to launch a massive effort to protect Californians' access to affordable health care.  Their action came as the Trump Administration and Republican-led Congress are launching an all-out assault on health security for millions of Americans, with plans to gut the Medicare guarantee for seniors and decimate the Affordable Care Act and Medi-Cal.  Health advocates promised to fight attacks on health care that that would force millions of Californians back into the ranks of the uninsured. 

Tuesday, November 22, Rally to Protect Our Healthcare

In 2017, a President and Congress will be sworn in who oppose federal funding for the healthcare services that employ our Sisters and Brothers, and that our families and communities rely on. They're proposing cuts that will hurt all of us.

Join us in a rally to protect healthcare!

LA LGBT Center Workers Reach Historic Tentative Agreement

Proposed Contract Offers Career Ladders and Living Wages for LGBTQI Workers and Allies

 

LOS ANGELES--After several months of contract bargaining sessions, the Los Angeles LGBT Center management and workers represented by SEIU Local 721 have reached a tentative agreement offering fair pay increases for all workers, including a groundbreaking path to $15/hr. that will outpace the minimum wage increase timeline Governor Brown signed into law in April of this year. Recognizing that workers at the LGBT Center are the backbone of a team who care for community members at a rate of 500,000 visits annually, all workers will receive improvements in pay and opportunities for career advancement.

"Together the voices of workers proved that we can help move the LGBT Center in the right direction, we've developed a tentative agreement that provides a stronger path for both the community who depend on the Center's wellness services and those of us who provide those services at the LGBT Center," said Alejandra Galindo, Patient Compliance Coordinator at the LGBT Center and a key leader in the SEIU 721 contract bargaining team. "The immense value that workers provide to the LGBTQI community is being recognized--a value that is reciprocated in the terms of this tentative agreement." 

 

At six worksites, Los Angeles LGBT Center workers deliver healthcare and provide mental health and other wellness services for individuals and groups, as well as community outreach and education, writ large. Workers are on the frontlines with clients and patients from the youngest generation to the eldest, supporting those managing chronic illnesses, performing laboratory and pharmaceutical work, and identifying resources for persons transitioning their gender identity, and every aspect of health and wellness. 

 

"Investing in the workforce is investing in the day-to-day frontline services that save lives, provide hope and ultimately lift up the LGBT community that goes to the LGBT Center," said Bob Schoonover, President of SEIU Local 721. "SEIU Local 721 knows that our strength is grounded in our ability to rise together - this includes workers and our communities - this tentative agreement is proof that labor and management can respond to inequities by working together towards equality and justice. We look forward to continue building on this tentative agreement so that together we can continue to see the LGBT Center flourish."

  

"The Center has a world-class team of employees who provide services that are truly helping to make the world a better place for LGBT people," said Center Chief of Staff Darrel Cummings. "We're happy to have reached tentative agreement on a new union contract that recognizes their outstanding work."

 

The tentative agreement is a 5-year term contract and it is pending full review and ratification vote by members represented by SEIU Local 721. Summary of the agreement and ratification vote, dates, times and locations will be available

via SEIUlocal721.org by November 10, 2016.
