 A few highlights from the first day of bargaining from your bargaining team: At the first bargaining meeting, your bargaining team was able to bring 44 of your coworkers to the table to bargain for you. We won an increased number of bargaining team members after the County originally offered about half of that. The County Chapter leadership was at the front of the room, and we were also joined by several dozen community allies from the Invest in San Diego Families coalition as observers. We outlined the Invest in San Diego Families bargaining platform and talked about how we are working with the community to go beyond the workplace and lift up the entire County. The County bargainers talked about how the state of the County is getting much worse.

Next bargaining meeting: Feb. 16, place to be determined

Other bargaining dates: Feb. 23, March 2, March 9, March 16,  March 31
We had great countywide support for your bargaining team, but remember we need to keep it up throughout the bargaining process to win the best contract possible. We will send specific details about how you can show your support. Put Feb. 16 in your calendar and remember to wear purple and start planning your unity break now.

In Solidarity,

Tracey Carter
SEIU Local 221, County Chapter President
