SEIU 721 represents more than 55,000 employees in Los Angeles County, stretching from the desert to the beaches. Our members provide quality parks, protect our drinking water, meet the needs of families, care for people at our hospitals and clinics, and much more for the 10 million people who live here.
Attention to all SEIU 721 DCFS CSW members! L.A. County DCFS recently concluded an audit, which found over 800 CSW's claimed weekend and evening mileage incorrectly, or logged into their computer outside of regular business hours without approval. While DCFS was ready to dish out penalties over these administrative hiccups, SEIU 721 immediately and aggressively pushed back to get a non-disciplinary response by DCFS.
When we got word of the plan to consolidate the Los Angeles Sheriff Department's Medical Services Bureau and the Department of Health Services we mobilized.
Have you heard the news? L.A. County employees must provide proof their dependents are eligible for medical and dental coverage by July 15, 2015.
Thousands of you joined our kick off with thousands of members outside of the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration (WATCH VIDEO), inspiring a call to raise ALL of L.A. County! Our bargaining is now well underway and we're ensuring that we negotiate for wins that both our members and the communities they serve can be proud of.
Our Nurse celebration on May 30 was a huge success!
Our Los Angeles County nurses were honored for the outstanding care they provide to our community. Both Robin Ellis and Marva Burgess received our Florence Nightingale award for honoring the caring legacy of Florence Nightingale through an unrelenting dedication to uplift the critical role of Nursing in the healthcare field.
When L.A County's most vulnerable families are in need of critical services including access to life-saving medical care, their first stop has to be getting their case approved through an L.A. County Eligibility Caseworker. However Eligibility Caseworkers are being asked to do the humanly impossible: to individually process the cases of over 3,000 families! That's right, throughout L.A. County, Eligibility Workers and Clerical Staff are drowning in a sea of cases with urgent demands from more and more families in desperate need and a system that has yet to catch up.
In honor of the work done by Los Angeles County DMH and Community Clinics workers, we will celebrate our contributions to the development of healthy communities with a recognition and awareness event. Please join us!
Join us to recognize and appreciate the hard work that nursing professionals do every day
to help families and improve communities.
