Tentative Agreement reached Monday night with Santa Clara County

SAN JOSE, Calif. – The County of Santa Clara and its In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) workforce have reached a tentative agreement that will strengthen the program by investing in additional training for providers as well as providing more community outreach to increase public awareness about long-term care.

Santa Clara County’s 17,000 home care workers are represented by Service Employees International Union, Local 521.

A protest scheduled for 8:00 a.m. Tuesday at 70 W. Hedding St. in San Jose – where hundreds were expected – will be turned into a celebratory rally.

More details about the tentative agreement, which still needs to be voted on by the workers and approved by the Board of Supervisors, will be released Tuesday.

The Service Employees International Union is an organization of 2.1 million members united by the belief in the dignity and worth of workers and the services they provide.  SEIU is dedicated to improving the lives of workers and their families and creating a more just and humane society.
