Ulises Leon

Organizer for Hacienda La Puente Unified School District, Torrance Unified School District, Lynwood Unified School District, Los Angeles Community College District, and Los Angeles County Office of Education

I am an Internal Organizer with four years organizing SEIU Local 99 Members in the field. Specializing in the So Cal Units (Lynwood, Torrance, and LACCD), I use my experience as a former classified employee of LAUSD to empower our members.

By focusing on empowering members, I have been able to put the experience I’ve garnered as a Special Education Assistant to good use. Over the years at 99, I’ve gained special knowledge that was extremely useful during our historic contract campaign at LAUSD that led to a strike and big gains for members in 2023. I may spend my days at Local 99, but it’s the struggle, the passion, and the possibility of improving the members’ lives that keeps me in the labor fight.

When I’m not organizing, I’m an avid vinyl record collector and love spending time with my family.

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

March 1st, 2024|

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.
