Fight for 347 fills in scandalous SEIU details
From: Art firstname.lastname@example.org
HERE'S SOME information you may find relevant:
The strategy to beat the merger came from an SEIU
international staff member who did not want to be
The strategy is to make the City of Los Angeles aware
that 721 is a different organization than 347, the
local that was certified as the exclusive bargaining
representative of over 9,000 city employees. This
will take place at the Employee Relations Board and
sites numerous examples and the Employee relations
The resolution would be to grant us "exclusive
jurisdiction" , or control of our union as made
possible in the new charter.
We have learned that 721 plans to turn all work site
issues, such as grievances, over to union stewards.
This will allow union reps, now known as "work site
organizers" to work on gathering COPE cards, political
campaigns, and other such things. This leads to the
question, what are we paying dues for?
We have learned that one of 721's first actions will
be to raise our dues. This is possible through the
new interim board that we did not elect.
Annelle Grajeda, an SEIU employee, former general
manager of 660, and most important, a non-member has
been appointed as 721's president.
Our union staff is still being held hostage by SEIU by
not granting them contracts at this time.
