On Thursday your negotiating team sat down with the County negotiating team ready to begin bargaining alongside our community partners in the Invest in San Diego Families coalition. The County negotiating team unlawfully refused to negotiate with the SEIU bargaining team, because of the presence of bargaining team members representing our community partners in the room. Basically, the County is demanding that they get to choose who can and can’t be on the bargaining team. The County’s representatives tried to create division among us and your committee stood strong and said, “We are united and won’t be divided. We will make the County invest in San Diego families!”
We are meeting to discuss this and strategize about next steps.
