SEIU 721 in a blatant attempt at stealing the goodwill and votes of it’s membership has taken steps to begin the re-vote of MOU 18 the Safety and Security section. Of the roughly 1800+ members in the unit, an overwhelming number have been very unhappy not only with the representation, but the lack of communication and misleading information presented.
Many members of MOU 18 are unwilling to remain at SEIU 721 any longer and are exploring options to leave for other unions more focused on Public Safety according to one Traffic Officer.
Significant numbers in these units will not be subject to furloughs and taking major pay cuts along with giving up cash overtime have been serious issues to these members along with Job Security as in the case of the Traffic Officers.
SEIU 721 had no comment on the matter and would not confirm or deny the schedule for a second vote.
“This is bullsh*t, they don’t care about us, they just want our dues money and to keep making the Mayor Happy, DWP ain’t gettin this crap.721 is making us slaves again working for damn near nothing” Said one Traffic Officer when told about the possible re vote.
MOU 04 which had a huge number of disenfranchised voters will not be re voted as the end result the Union wanted has been achieved even though this unit was the only one to actually file a complaint to request a second election.
SEIU 721 Is an international Union dedicated to serving the employers needs over the employee as indicated in this matter.
