This is the County of Ventura Headquarters (HQ) page for our 2022 bargaining campaign. This page will be updated as our campaign progresses.

Online voting launched! See below.

We did it! Our SEIU 721 bargaining team delivered on a strong tentative agreement that uplifts members, our families, and our communities!

The three-year agreement includes 13% general salary increases over the term of the TA, significant increases in flex credit contribution, a one-time bonus of $2,000, and a new paid Juneteenth holiday!

Market Based Adjustments Job Classification list
Market based adjustments are made for classifications that are below market rate after the salary increase. For example, GSA Custodian Supervisors will receive a 5.5% GSI effective 12/25/2022 (1/13/2023 paycheck) and will receive additional 10.83% MBA effective 1/8/2023 (1/27/2023 paycheck).

Our bargaining team had the momentum to win this agreement thanks to the organizing and action of more than 360 Contract Action Team (CAT) members who have been the lifeblood and backbone of this campaign. Together, members submitted more than 1,400 bargaining surveys that guided us on setting top priorities.

The team heard you loud and clear, and our team brought home an agreement with historic General Salary Increases.

When we fight, we win!

Build Union Strength in Ventura County

The beginning of a bargaining campaign is a great time to strengthen
our union by bringing in new members.
If a co-worker asks how he/she can join the union,
send them to the SEIU 721 Welcome page.
