On Wednesday, July 30, 2003, hundreds of janitors representing SEIU Local 1877 took to the streets of San Francisco to show that they are ready to strike to protect their health care benefits. Speakers from a number of other unions and the San Francisco Labor Council were there to show their solidarity with this struggle.

The companies/building owners took the 20% monthly insurance co-pay off the table, but then proposed eliminating the vision plan and adding a $20 per doctor visit co-pay. This is an attack on the medical benefits the union has had for over 30 years.

A special contract vote meeting will be held on Saturday, August 2, at 11 am in the Longshoreman's Hall, 301 Beach St., San Francisco. All members will vote by secret ballot.
