SF SEIU 1021 Secret Top Down Concession Bargaining, Outsourcing & Privatization Under Covid-19 Depression

Brenda Barros, SEIU 1021 SF General Hospital Chapter Chair and Cheryl Thornton, SEIU 1021 SF DPH Community Healthcare Vice Chair talk about the lack of transparency in the distribution by the union of PPE masks to the membership.

Many frontline workers are still without proper PPE two months after the virus has hit San Francisco frontline workers.

The also report on the secret top down concession bargaining that the leadership of SEIU 1021 are engaged in with city officials and the concern that they are already making major concessions.

Rank and file members at union meeting held by SEIU 1021 leadership according to Barros and Thornton have been top down preventing rank and file members from presenting their views at the meeting.

They also talk about past union give backs in healthcare and pensions that the SEIU leadership is already pushing without including the membership and rank and file elected leaders in the negotiations.

They report on the secret negotiations by SEIU 1021 leaders with Healthcare 360, a massive privately run non-profit that is siphoning off large number of public jobs to this "non-profit".

The SEIU 1021 officials are pushing privatization of public jobs to privately run "non-profit" agencies that pay workers 20 to 30% less in wages and benefits. There is also virtually no oversight of these agencies.

They report that SEIU Local 1021 rank and file elected leaders were lied to about the recruitment of these members into the union and have kept the contract with Healthcare 360 a secret from the union membership and chapter leaders.

The SEIU 1021 leadership as well as SEIU statewide is making secret deals to "unionize" the privately run non-profit Healthcare 360 and shift public jobs to the non-profit which pays 30 to 40% less than public worker jobs. This is providing an incentive of the privatizer in the City and County of San Francisco to destroy public city and county jobs. They also have kept the contract agreement with Healthcare 360 a secret from the elected leaders of the SEIU 1021 local.
