SEIU Local 521 Bargaining Report 01/31/24

SEIU/CWA 9423 Bargaining Team
Bargaining Report 01/31/24

Today, your CWA bargaining team presented our bargaining principles to the management team. We also presented our CWA petition supporting these principles and with 90% of our bargaining unit’s support, it speaks to our unity behind these principles.  

These are the articles that CWA presented at today's negotiation table:

  • Article 2 - Union Security (Protections for temporary workers)

  • Article 5 - Non-Discrimination (Mental Health Services & Accommodations)

  • Article 10 - New Employees (Protections for temporary workers)

  • Article 11 - Performance Evaluations/Assessment Documents (Protections for temporary workers)

  • Article 21 - Bereavement (Improved workplace culture)

Megan, External Organizer statement on protections for temporary workers: “We understand that sometimes there is a need for temporary workers, but we believe that SEIU 521 should exemplify clear, concise, and concrete policies regarding temporary workers so that we can build a stronger labor movement and ensure that SEIU 521 staff, regardless of status, feel valued and respected.”

Chrissy, Contract Enforcement Specialist statement on bereavement & non-discrimination: “These proposals intend to increase inclusivity in our contract and highlight our CWA membership’s uniqueness. It ensures members have equal rights regardless of their family or disability status”

Please keep in mind this is our first round of proposals and that we have yet to begin bargaining on any economic proposals at this time.

  • 2/7/2024 3pm-5pm

  • 2/13/2024 1pm-3pm
