San Francisco Members Step Up to Pass C, Defeat D

San Francisco’s Proposition C was put on the ballot by labor, city leaders, and other stakeholders, and will save at least $1.3 billion for the City over the next decade, strengthen our pension plan, minimize layoffs, and protect services by making smart, sustainable changes to the contribution structure of the San Francisco Employees’ Retirement System. Prop. D is a competing pension reform measure that asks for unsustainable changes and was put on the ballot without any input from public employees groups. For more details on these measures visit the campaign website.


Join us for twice weekly phone banks every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30-8:30pm as we call members and union friendly voters to educate them about propositions C and D. Email us to RSVP or get more information.


Can’t join us in the evenings? We are also organizing a special lunchtime phone bank on Tuesday, October 18 from Noon to 1pm, hosted by the San Francisco Information Technology chapter and Purchasers chapter, 1182 Market St., 3rd floor, San Francisco.


Also, save the date for our next precinct walk – Saturday, October 22, 10am, as members of SEIU 1021 and IFPTE Local 21 drop campaign information at the homes of voters. Meet at 350 Rhode Island, San Francisco (enter on Kansas St. between 16th and 17th). RSVP to
