Transparency, Health Care Costs Continue to be Priorities


At the start of the New Year, we predicted that health care would be the “Issue of 2013.” Less than half way through the year, our prediction came true. As part of our efforts through the Public Employee Committee’s (PEC) Labor Management Committee on Health and Wellness, Local 21 has been at the forefront of fighting for transparent, accountable active and retiree health care on multiple fronts. 

Watch For Increases to Wages, Pension Contributions


Last year, Local 21 members ratified a new contract with a full 4.62% salary restoration and end to furlough days, the first scheduled wage increases since 2008, two additional 1-time paid floating holidays, and other improvements.

Payroll Errors Lead to Overpayments


This was originally sent as an email to more than 800 Local 21 Represented employees in the City and County of San Francisco who we believe received overpayments on the November 20th payroll.
