Will we stand stronger together to fight for better wages, living standards for all Fresno County workers?
When so much is at stake, it is important to get things right. That’s why PERB has agreed with SEIU Local 521 members who believe last August election had serious irregularities and should be re-run.
We deserve a fair election!
The only way to win is through our collective voice. We have to stand united to continuing winning for all workers. It’s our job to hold our bosses accountable and we can only do that by standing stronger together!
Time to unite, fight and win!
We now have a new opportunity to show Management that we will stand united with each other to fight for ourselves and our community.
“We have another chance to make sure all our voices are heard. Together, we won back the wage cuts and a new contract, and if we are to win more, our only chance is to stay united.” – Laura Basua, Chapter President
Background on PERB Decision:
For the August election, voter packets were erroneously mailed out on July 16, rather than on July 20 which was the approved date as set by the State Mediation and Conciliation Service (SMCS).
The PERB decision read in part: “SMCS made an inadvertent and honest error but the parties should not have to bear the consequences of that error.”
The parties are directed to meet with SMCS to establish a new voting period for an election re-run.
