Our New contract is here!

City of Coalinga MOU 7.1.16 – 6.30.19


If a supervisor or manager requests a meeting that you think may lead to discipline, you should use your Weingarten Rights by stating:

“If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, I respectfully request that my union representative be present at the meeting.  Without representation present, I choose not to respond to any questions or statements.”

SEIU 521 Contract Enforcement Department is Fighting for Your Rights

Our contracts and rights need to be protected.  That’s why SEIU Local 521 members have a Contract Enforcement Department (CED).  It’s an easy way to get answers to your contract questions.  The CED has trained employees who can answer questions and even file grievances for you!

If you believe that disciplinary action will be taken against you, or that your contract has been violated, contact your steward and/or the Contract Enforcement Specialist Assistant (CESA) in your regional office.

Rachel Tudor, Contract Enforcement Specialist Assistant
(559) 447-2560 Monday—Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

You can still reach your Internal Worksite Organizer by telling the CESA that you need to speak to them.

On March 16 a group of SEIU Local 521 members attended the City Council meeting.  Larry Miller and Eric DeLeon spoke during the public comment session and asked to be given a living wage for their commitment to the community.

It is time we turn up the pressure and let the City of Coalinga know that we are done rolling our contract over to the next year in hopes of being fairly compensated for the services we provide to the community.

Stay tuned for our next meeting.
