The Results are in for SMMUSD’s New Labor Management Committees

Welcome your new LMC members!

SEIU Local 99 Members at Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD) on the Labor Management Committees will be working to enforce our current contract and address any issues that may arise in the different work areas. But it’s up to all members to support these teams. They meet directly with the district but, as we know, if we want our voices heard, we need to be ready to support them at our worksites and in our communities. 

Members were elected to these teams after a rigorous nomination process that included collecting signatures from members in their job category. Please note that vacancies still exist in some job categories.

Congratulations to all the member leaders who participated in the process. Now, let’s get ready to fight for better working conditions and more!
