Converting ‘just a job’ into good jobs
By TRACEY CARTER
SEIU LOCAL 221 COUNTY CHAPTER PRESIDENT
On Tuesday, May 30, your SEIU Local 221 bargaining team presented the SEIU 221 Proposal for Good Jobs. We know that with the County’s stable income and strong finances (see San Diego County Budget Analysis), the County could fund SEIU 221’s proposals without changing the fundamentals of its budget strategy.
SEIU Local 221’s proposals would accomplish three main goals:
First, they would secure free health coverage under Kaiser HMO.
Second, they would provide County employees with wage increases greater than inflation.
Finally, they would make County workers’ pay and benefits competitive with other similar counties.
The Center on Policy Initiatives Deputy Director Kyra R. Greene also presented the San Diego County Budget Analysis. See the complete PowerPoint here.
Remember, we must stand together, stand strong, and everyone must participate
