Together, we won some great victories this year and defended the voices of working families. This is especially notable in a year in which billionaire special interests brought Janus vs. AFCSME before the Supreme Court to try to sabotage the power of working families. We stood together and their plan backfired with many unions actually gaining membership after their attack.
A few other highlights include:
Our unity and fighting spirit will move us forward in the new year when we will face many challenges including the County of San Diego’s need to invest in staffing as illustrated by this state audit. Sign this petition to tell the county to do the right thing before we are hit by the next crisis.
Thank you for standing strong. I hope the holidays provide you and your family a restful time to reflect and prepare for the challenges ahead. From our family to yours, we wish you a happy holiday and a great new year!
In solidarity and happy holidays,
President, SEIU Local 221
