Celebrating 75 Years of Union Strength


Contract Negotiations Move Forward at Compton Unified

March 22nd, 2024|Compton Unified School District|

Members on our SEIU Local 99 bargaining team met with Compton Unified on Friday, March 1st, 2024 for another round of contract negotiations. Bargaining team members went on the offensive and presented demands that included higher wages and  increased money for medical benefits. Members met again with Compton Unified representatives on March 14, 2024 where the district provided an overtly disrespectful offer to members. The counter offer was only 5%! Lower than what was presented to other unions at Compton Unified. The employer stated they weren’t interested in negotiating stipends for the work that is done by unit members.

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.

February 28th, 2024|LAUSD, LAUSD Bargaining Updates|

LAUSD is trying to push back on the historic contract gains we fought so hard to win almost a year ago. They have been dragging their feet on establishing a process to increase the hours of Special Education Assistants, resisted increasing hours for Health Care Assistants, and now, they’re cutting the hours of Campus Aides, Supervision Aides and Teacher Assistants.
