Medical Re-Opener? No, Thanks!

June 20, 2017

Our Contract Negotiators believe we should not be negotiating with so many UNKNOWNS at this time. With the federal government threatening the Affordable Care Act and federal funding to our sanctuary county, we believe the county’s priority should be preserving quality services that put our community first.

Medical ReopenerOn June 20, member leaders and negotiators came to the Board of Supervisors meeting to voice their concerns from the membership. The Board heard the overwhelming concerns from our leaders and agreed that they would have further discussions regarding our health care reopener in closed session.

Let’s continue to remind the County that we need to focus on putting our community first!
Get involved! Become a Contract Action Team member (CAT) for the benefits reopener.

Medical Re-Opener? No, Thanks! – May 31, 2017

During the last contract negotiations, SEIU Santa Clara County members were able to beat back increases to our members’ medical coverage with a limited re-opener this June, in anticipation of the 2018 Cadillac tax.

Even though the Cadillac tax has been extended to 2020, the County thinks we should still negotiate our medical coverage this June.  Our Negotiators believe we should not be negotiating with so many UNKNOWNS at this time. With the federal government threatening the Affordable Care Act and federal funding to our sanctuary county, we believe the county’s priority should be preserving quality services that put our community first.

Please join us for more information at an upcoming unity break at your worksite.
