We will soon begin negotiations with Santa Monica Malibu Unified for our next full contract. Our wages, hours, working conditions and other issues affecting our jobs are on the line. The first step to winning a strong contract is electing our bargaining team. The bargaining team is made up of the Chief Steward and nine other members. Nominations for members wishing to be part of the team will be open August 23-27, 2021
Santa Monica Malibu Unified members were on the frontlines disinfecting schools throughout the pandemic, preparing campuses for students’ safe return, and helping families in need. They were deemed essential workers, but the district would not recognize their work with hero pay. Members never gave up. They shared their stories, spoke out at school board meetings, signed petitions, and stood strong at the bargaining table. It paid off. On June 11, members ratified a new agreement that secures hero pay.
