President of SEIU CA Laphonza Butler, said on June 23,
"We intend to explore all available options to ensure a sustainable, equitable universal healthcare system in California."
If we take her, at her word, we would expect more of a fight as the representative of the entire California Membership!
Such obsequiousness to the shelving of SB562, a bill that would affect the entire membership of SEIU in California by granting them Universal Healthcare Coverage is unacceptable!
Copy of Email I sent to SEIU CA:
"It's ridiculous that SEIU would back the shelving of Senate Bill 562 by Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon.
Healthcare is a Human Right!
We need our Union to show leadership in the name of all of its members. As an elected member of the Contract Bargaining Team dor SEIU Local 99, a member of the C.O.P.A. and Social Justice Committees, I feel compelled to voice the magnitude of this failure of leadership as this will affect ALL SEIU MEMBERS IN CALIFORNIA!
Its disheartening to have to speak for many members, who have no time to educate themselves as to what's happening. They are working numerous jobs just to pay for food to feed their children, medicine many times a neccessity as we get older and the ever increasing price of housing.
Its time we as members applied pressure to you as our representative at the table of Solidarity.
Let not be the ones on the side of those politians killing the development of Universal Healthcare for All Our Members.
WE HAVE THE COURAGE TO DO IT, LETS HELP OUR MEMBERSHIP SEEK RESPECT, JUSTICE AND FAIRNESS THROUGH EQUITABLE WAGES AND THE SAFETY NET OF A UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE SYSTEM PROTECTING THEIR FAMILIES.
