Local 21 members: Your action made this happen! Over the last three months, Coalition members placed hundreds of phone calls to the Board of Supervisors' offices, rallied and made public comments at the monthly Board meetings, collected more than 2,000 employee petition signatures, and engaged in solidarity pickets at a dozen County worksites - all of which created the pressure and leverage we needed to come to a fair agreement with the County. THANK YOU for all your hard work! Please make sure to VOTE to ratify our contract, and encourage your colleagues to do the same.
