Our SEIU Local 99 contracts with LAUSD expire on June 30, 2020. In preparing for these full-contract negotiations, members at LAUSD will be electing a new bargaining team. The Local 99 bargaining team is responsible for representing all members working at LAUSD in negotiations with school district management representatives. Voting for the new team will happen on Saturday, February 8, 2020 during the Industry Division meeting held from 10 am – 12 pm at LA Trade Technical College -Aspen Hall 400 W. Washington Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90015.
There are 24 available seats up for election, as follows:
- Unit B = 9 seats
- Unit C = 9 seats
- Unit F = 2 seats
- Unit G = 4 seats
To be nominated for a seat on the bargaining team, any member in good standing must submit a petition of support, signed by at least 25 Local 99 members from their own bargaining unit. The deadline to turn-in completed petitions is 11:00am on Saturday, February 8 at the Industry Division Meeting at LA Trade Tech College. Prior to February 8, petitions may be turned into SEIU Local 99’s Main office (2724 W. 8th St. Los Angeles, CA 90005), Monday through Friday from 8am-5pm. Petitions are available to download and print. Click here.
Paper copies of nominating petitions are also available at the Local 99 main office. Detailed instructions for completing and submitting nominating petitions are included with the petition itself.
At the February 8, 2020 Industry Division meeting, LAUSD members in attendance will vote for nominees from their own bargaining unit. Nominees in contested races will have the opportunity to give a 1-minute speech on why they want to be a part of the Bargaining Team. Nominees who cannot be present may submit a statement in writing by either delivering it to SEIU Local 99’s main office at 2724 W. 8th St. Los Angeles, CA 90005 by Friday, February 7 at 5pm or the statement may be delivered by a member in good standing at the Industry Division Meeting by 11am. Statements will be read at the meeting. Nominees who are not elected to fill an available seat may serve as alternates in bargaining, as needed.
