Labor Management Committee: Update on LMC meeting held on May 8th, 2024

Come join Pre-LMC Meeting May 24, 2024 from 10AM-2PM

SEIU Local 99 members on the Labor  Management Committee (LMC) meet directly with LACCD management to discuss worksite issues. Members elected to serve on the LMC are:

  • Eraina Bell, Custodian at East LA College
  • Cecilia Kamande, Custodian at West LA College
  • Joseph Ayala, Custodian at Harbor College
  • Alberto Bautista, Custodian at LA Trade Tech
  • Hauson Sanders, Custodian at LA Valley College
  • Elmer Rivera, Custodian at Pierce College
  • Christzann Ozan, Custodian at LA Southwest College
  • Irma Lopez, Custodian at LA Mission College
  • Darian Davis, Custodian at LA City College 

In our meeting held on May 8th, 2024, members on the M&O LMC addressed the following issues:

  • Face Recognition Software at Harbor College
    • We are pushing the district to have this software removed. Members have urged for a deadline to be established when the removal can be expected.
  • Health & Safety
    • Members are concerned with health hazards from extensive trash cans on campus and are moving the district to have them removed.
  • Comp Time
    • Employees are being ordered to give a 5 day notice prior to taking comp time. Members are pushing back urging that comp time earned should be used as long as advance notice is provided which is in compliance with current contract language. This is being negotiated in on-going contract negotiations.
      • As it reads now: Per “ARTICLE 8 HOURS AND OVERTIME: B. Overtime: “Compensatory time off shall be taken at a time convenient to the employee provided that it is scheduled in advance and would not unduly interfere with the operation of the unit.”
  • 40 Day Review
    • Members are being denied overtime. This will not stand! We pushed the district to stop supervisors abusing their authority to deny overtime.
  • ACR’s
    • Supervisors are not being compliant with the chain of command at LA City College & East LA College. An update on this issue is being addressed at the next LMC meeting.

The next Labor Management Committee meeting is on Thursday, May 30.

Before each LMC meeting with management, SEIU Local 99 members meet to discuss the issues that will be discussed with management. Join us at the next pre-LMC meeting.
