We represent nearly 1,428 workers at the County of Santa Cruz.
We launched MemberLink, a secure website for our union members.
It’s user friendly and includes our union contract, exclusive union member benefits, specific chapter news displayed on our own home page, a list of contacts if you have an issue at work, the ability to RSVP for meetings and trainings, and basic grievance information. Register now!
Make sure you have your SEIU 521 Union Member ID ready, so that it’s faster to register (Option 1 ONLY). If you don’t know your Member ID, contact your SEIU 521 union office.
You can also register by entering the last four digits of your employee number and selecting your employer (“County – Santa Cruz” under Option 2 ONLY).
Please note that we will no longer update this webpage.
