When We Fight, We Win! LAUSD Reinstates Hundreds of Members to Summer Bridge Program

Earlier this year, LAUSD wrongfully denied hundreds of SEIU Local 99 members enrollment in the Summer Bridge Fund (also called the Classified School Employee Summer Assistance Program). The district claimed these members were not eligible because they worked the 2019 summer session. We fought back and more than 1300 members are now back in the program.

Action Alert: Tell LAUSD to Stop Denying Summer Bridge Benefits

SEIU Local 99 education workers fought hard to pass California's Summer Bridge Fund law that provides school workers with a safety net to help them make it through the summer when no work is available. But LAUSD is wrongfully denying many workers access to the program and forcing families to struggle with hunger and eviction during the summer months. We've contacted the District repeatedly to fix this issue. But they refuse to move. It's time to take action.
