Santa Clara County wage increase comes just in time for the Holidays
SEIU 521 won an important wage increase victory this past August when our SEIU 521 Community First campaign pushed the Santa Clara County to offer a 5% wage increase (over two years) on the same day members were scheduled to vote for a strike date.
Community First: Not just a slogan
We stood together and put Community First.
