Nomination Process for Labor Management Committees:

To be nominated for a seat on a Labor Management Committee or Executive Committee, any member in good standing must submit a Nomination Petition, signed by at least 25 SEIU Local 99 members from their LMC job category or 25% of members in their LMC job category, whichever is smaller. 

The deadline to submit the completed Nomination Petition has been extended to Friday, October 27, 2023 at 5pm. Prior to October 27, petitions may be turned into an SEIU Local 99 Organizer or at SEIU Local 99’s main office (3530 Wilshire Blvd. #1800, Los Angeles, CA 90010) Monday through Friday between 8am-5pm. Petitions may also be scanned or photographed and sent to raguilar@seiu99.org or your Organizer. 

Members will be notified if they have submitted sufficient petition signatures to qualify for an election for a seat on a Labor Management Committee or Executive Committee within 48-hours of submitting their petitions. If members do not submit enough qualifying signatures, they will have until October 30th at 5pm to resubmit the petition with the additional signatures needed to complete the required 25 signatures or signatures by 25% of their LMC job category.  Members in contested elections will be notified by October 31st, 2023. Contested means that there will be a vote between all members within your classification to determine who will win the seat and the second highest will be an alternate.
