After taking action, speaking out at school board meetings and months of negotiations, our bargaining team has reached a tentative agreement with the Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District for hero pay to recognize the hard work and commitment of SEIU Local 99 members during the pandemic.

According to our tentative agreement, members are eligible for hero pay of up to $2000 depending on their assignment.

Members must vote to ratify this agreement. Voting is taking place online. The last day to vote is Friday, June 11. Only members of SEIU Local 99 working at SMMUSD may vote.

More information on voting and the full language of the tentative agreement are available here.
