Some Progress In Negotiations – But Not Enough!

By |March 1st, 2024|Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District|

Our SEIU Local 99 bargaining team at SMMUSD met with the district on February 29th, 2024. It’s clear our speak-out at the school board meetings and purple-up actions at school sites are having an impact because there was some progress made on expanding work calendars and increasing work hours for some classifications. But it’s not enough! The district also made no movement on their wage proposal. They are only guaranteeing a 4% wage increase for 2024. Not enough!

Let’s Unite, Organize, & Mobilize!

On Tuesday, February 27, SEIU Local 99 members packed the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District board meeting along with parents & students of the surrounding community. Together, we demanded that the board protect student services and jobs in our community by voting  "NO" against laying off Physical Activities Specialists (PAS) & a Media Services Coordinator.  While our actions moved the board to protect some jobs, ultimately a majority of the Board refused to listen to the voices of students, parents, and education workers and voted to move forward with the layoffs of 11 PAS and delay the vote on the Media Services Coordinator position until their next meeting on March 7.

Members sent a strong message to SMMUSD today that we are united for livable wages, more staffing, and no layoffs!

Most workers at SMMUSD can’t afford to live where they work. That's why members like Henry addressed the SMMUSD board last week pressing the board, "where are our raises?". Enough is Enough! Our Bargaining Team is back in negotiations with the school district tomorrow, Friday, February 23, 2024.
