SEIU Local 99 Members Kickoff Negotiations with Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD)!

Fighting for a strong contract!

Members on our SEIU Local 99 bargaining team at LACCD met with the district for our first negotiations session on February 26. We discussed wages and we made it clear that members at LACCD are demanding livable wages. 

57% of SEIU Local 99 members at LACCD have to work outside jobs to make ends meet. Low wages & understaffing remain our key priorities we are addressing in negotiations.

All SEIU Local 99 members at LACCD perform essential work that helps our students learn in a clean, safe, and supportive environment. No one should be earning below a living wage salary!

Cecilia Kamande, Bargaining Team member Custodian at West LA College encourages all SEIU Local 99 members to “…continue to stand united at our worksites by wearing purple & buttoning up in support of your bargaining team at our next negotiations session with the district on March 25th. Stay tuned for more!”.
