Earlier this month, our Bargaining Team came out with a strong opening offer led by 8 percent across-the-board wage increases that reflect our public service and sacrifices during the COVID pandemic.
This week the County responded with its opening offer for a three-year contract:
- Across-the-board wage increases of 3 percent the first year, 2 percent the second year and 2 percent the third year
- Equity increases to full median for 80 percent of SEIU members in three years. This is in response to our multi-year campaign to conduct an equity study and fund it!
- Flex credit increase of 4 percent a year over three years
- The County has not yet responded to our proposals on step increases, premiums and addressing our Tier D proposal
The County’s opening offer is both double the value of the first three years of our final contract from 2017 and not nearly enough to address high turnover, fill vacant positions and provide quality staffing throughout San Diego County.
Let's all unite to ensure that the County respects us, protects us and pays us.
Actions like these are how we move the Supervisors and get the fair contract that we deserve.
