3 Taking Taking Action Action to to Rebuild Rebuild California California Enough is enough! For years, Governor Schwarzenegger has delivered a state budget that s all cuts. For many SEIU Local 99 members, budget cuts have meant furlough days, layoffs, reduced hours, or other sacrifices. For students, cuts have meant fewer services, crowded classrooms, and a reduced school year. This is no way to strengthen our schools or rebuild our economy. On November 2, we have the opportunity to change our current crisis by electing a new Governor. SEIU members are supporting Jerry Brown for his commitment to a state budget that includes revenue not just cuts! This election, we can t afford to sit back and let someone else do the work. If you re tired of the cuts and tired of the furloughs, it s time to take action to Rebuild CA! Here s what you can do: Yes We Can! Take a Walk! Join weekend precinct walks and talk to voters in their neighborhoods about what s at stake in the Governor s election. Get on the Phone! Join us for evening phone banking and talk to voters about the importance of electing a working families Governor. Contribute to COPE! We need to make sure we elect and hold accountable a Governor and Legislators who stand up for the issues that matter most to us, like funding for our schools and resources for good jobs. Our voluntary contributions to the Committee On Political Education (COPE) make sure we have a strong voice at the local, state, and federal level. To contribute, please contact your Steward or Union Representative at For more information on these activities visit or call Our people powered politics continue to pay-off! Thanks to the efforts of SEIU Local 99 members, including our work to elect President Obama and our contributions to the Committee on Political Education (COPE) fund, President Obama signed the Education Jobs Bill that includes $10 billion to protect education jobs. The Education Department estimates that this funding will save 160,000 jobs nationwide. About $1.2 billion of this federal education funding is expected to come to California. 3

4 We re Doing Our Part SEIU Local 99 members have been making sacrifices to protect student programs and prevent the loss of jobs. Furlough days, reduced school years, and other cost cutting measures are a response to the massive cuts to California s education budget. While this helps address the immediate crisis, we know we need long term solutions that will strengthen our schools. Members at LAUSD Vote To Accept Furlough Days SEIU Local 99 members in Units B & C at the Los Angeles Unified School District, including Special Education Assistants, Cafeteria Workers, Custodians, and others voted to accept eight furlough days for the school year. The furloughs, which prevent hundreds of layoffs, coincide with a reduced school year approved by the School Board. For the traditional school year, seven of the furlough days will be taken during days that schools will be closed. Those days are: September 8 and 10, November 22, 23, and 24 (Thanksgiving Week), and June 27 and 28. One furlough day will be assigned by the District. Each employee will be notified by their supervisor of the exact day of that furlough. For the furlough day schedule for non-traditional calendars, please visit or call In a separate vote, Bus Drivers at LAUSD voted to approve up to five additional furlough days in order to save full time jobs. 4

5 Members at Torrance Unified Agree to Five Furlough Days SEIU Local 99 members working at Torrance Unified School District voted in favor of taking five furlough days in the school year. Members will adopt the same 5-day reduction in paid work days as other employees for the school year. These furloughs, plus retirements and resignations, will reduce layoffs for SEIU Local 99 members. Board at Ventura County Community College District Approves Layoffs Despite strong alternatives to layoffs presented by our Local 99 bargaining team, including furlough days, the Board of Trustees moved forward this spring with the elimination or reduction of 24 classified employee positions, including many who provided direct services to disabled students. Over the last two years, 92 classified jobs have been cut at the College District. In response, union members are taking the lead to ensure they elect board members who understand the value of classified employees. Candidates are being invited to walk a day in the shoes of a Local 99 member. Additionally, members held a Town Hall Meeting this summer to interview the Board candidates. Ongoing Negotiations Over Layoffs Many SEIU Local 99 members continue to negotiate over layoffs, including discussions on alternatives to job loss. At press time, talks were ongoing at: Compton Unified, Los Angeles County Office of Education, Lynwood Unified, and Santa Monica Malibu Unified. Trustee Blum with Local 99 Members at Ventura College. Walk a Day in My Shoes Board candidate spends a day working at Ventura College Library to experience impact of budget cuts Stephen Blum, a member of the Ventura County Community College Board of Trustees and an incumbent candidate, worked a shift this summer with SEIU Local 99 Member Dana Boynton, a Library Assistant at Ventura College. He spent the day assisting some of the hundreds of students who checked-out textbooks in preparation for the fall semester. In the past two years, the College Board has addressed shortfalls in state funding by reducing vital student services and laying off or eliminating nearly 100 classified employee positions. I hope (Trustee Blum) understands how important direct student contact is on campus, said Dana. The District makes these cuts and doesn t realize what actual student services are affected. At press time, Trustee Art Hernandez was also scheduled to walk a day in the shoes of an SEIU Local 99 member. Big Oil Do Your Part... Because of state budget loopholes, oil companies in California are not taxed for the oil they drill from beneath our land and water. That means our state is giving away billions of dollars in tax breaks to rich corporations while the rest of us are being asked to balance the budget with furlough days and other cuts. It s just wrong! A tax on big oil companies would raise at least $1.2 billion for our schools and other vital public services. That s what our state needs more revenue, not cuts. To find out more about how big oil can help rebuild California visit 5

6 Brown vs. Whitman On the Issues We Care About FUNDING FOR OUR SCHOOLS Brown: Jerry Brown is committed to education. He began his political career as a Trustee at the Los Angeles Community College District. He founded two schools in Oakland. As Governor, he will allocate money to K-12 districts based on students specific needs and will increase funding for colleges and universities. His education plan also has a focus on streamlining funding to community colleges. Whitman: Meg Whitman has called for further cuts in state spending which will undoubtedly result in more cuts to education. She has no plan to bring in new revenue to our state, meaning our schools will continue to struggle. JOB SECURITY Brown: Jerry Brown has always stood up for working people, especially when he signed the Rodda Act into law, which provided classified school employees with the right to bargain a contract. Whitman: Meg Whitman has already proposed laying off 40,000 state workers to balance the budget. RETIREMENT SECURITY Brown: Jerry Brown supports defined-benefit pensions, such as CalPERS, rather than 401k-style pensions. In a defined benefit pension plan, we know the amount of money we will receive at retirement. With 401ks, our retirement dollars are at the mercy of the stock markets. Whitman: Meg Whitman has proposed eliminating pensions and forcing all public employees into risky 401k plans. She s also said she would require current classified employees and other CalPERS members to pay more and retire later in order to keep their defined benefit plan. CONTRACTING OUT OUR JOBS Brown: He opposes the repeal of SB 1419, which prohibits the contracting-out of our classified school employee jobs. Jerry Brown supports the use of full-time, permanent state workers because they provide the consistency and stability needed. Whitman:She supports the repeal of SB 1419, which would contract out our jobs. Whitman has proposed contracting-out work in various state departments to private corporations. 6

7 Members Take Early Ed Issues Directly to Congress SEIU Local 99 Members LaRonda Davison and Gayle Williams meet with U.S. Representative Laura Richardson to urge more funding for Head Start, Child Care, and other early education programs. By Gayle Williams Family Service Worker, CDI Head Start SEIU Local 99 Executive Board Member LaRonda Davison and I, both your representatives on the SEIU Local 99 Executive Board, traveled to Washington, D.C. to lobby Congress for Early Education funding. It was great to represent our SEIU Local 99 brothers and sisters in the early education field. And I was excited to see our International Union take the lead in assuring that federally funded early education workers across the nation have a voice, making sure our elected leaders know our stories. We told them how increased early education funding will support children and families. We also explained to these leaders that we want to build respect for our profession, improving educational and career advancement opportunities and increasing our wages to compare to other education workers. We want to be recognized as early education professionals, not babysitters. We want to be recognized as early education professionals, not babysitters. I was encouraged as we spoke with U.S. Representative Laura Richardson, who told us that we can definitely count on her support. We also visited with U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer s Legislative Assistant who informed us that Senator Boxer has been on the forefront in addressing the needs of Early Education. Even before President Obama released his budget proposal, Senator Boxer had requested that he increase funding for Early Education. Before we started our journey up the hill to meet with these leaders, we heard from our union s newly-elected President, Mary Kay Henry the first woman president of our International Union! The room was at an all time high! Her words geared us up even more to speak courageously about what this funding would do for our Head Start Programs, Child Care Centers, and Licensed Daycare Providers. More funding will expand services to more children, increase nutritional services and address childhood obesity, and allow us to retain high quality services and workers who provide those services. 7

8 IMMIGRATION REFORM We Are All The Same SEIU Local 99 Members Take a Stand for Immigration Reform On the morning of July 29, SEIU Local 99 members Nadia Lizarraga and Gamaliel Gama Andrade boarded a bus to Arizona. They joined with hundreds of other union members and community activists traveling without papers to challenge SB 1070 on the day the Arizona immigration law was set to go into effect. The day before, a U.S. District Court Judge had struck down parts of the law, ensuring that police cannot use racial profiling to inquire into a person s immigration status. Upon their return from Arizona, Nadia and Gama answered questions about the need for immigration reform. Why did you join the trip to protest the Arizona law? Nadia: People need to know that this type of so-called immigration reform can spread to California. We need to control immigration, but we need to take the correct steps. We need laws that protect people s humanity. Gama: If we as members want to bring change, we have to stand up for what we believe in. We have to do everything we can to prevent laws like SB1070. We need to fix the system, but the federal government has to do something about immigration reform. It s not up to each state to do whatever they want. What s wrong with the current immigration system? Gama: The current system needs a complete overhaul. We have people here who just want to work and contribute to the country but they live in fear. Every time they go to work they have the fear of not making it back home There are children whose parents are stuck in limbo. It s a system that pulls families apart. Nadia: Laws are enforced in certain areas and not others. It s o.k. for employers to have workers working under the radar, but not o.k. for workers to come here. Workers are just used for the employers benefit and convenience. Why is immigration reform a union issue? Gama: We re all fighting for the same thing, the right to work with dignity for a living wage. If more workers got paid a decent wage and didn t get paid under the table", it would help the U.S. economy. Nadia: It s also for the protection of workers. (Undocumented workers) work hard and a lot of times they are exploited. SEIU Supports Immigration Reform That: Replaces an illegal flow with a legal flow of immigrant workers that is based on real labor demand and provides full labor protections. Gets undocumented immigrants into the system to ensure they pass background checks, pay fines, learn English, get on the tax rolls, and become U.S. citizens. Reduces backlogs that keep families apart so that loved ones won t have to endure years even decades, of unnecessary separation. Couples border enforcement with smart reforms in the workplace including vigorous labor protections that will raise standards for all workers.

9 DRIVEN TO SUCCEED LAUSD BUS DRIVER GOES THE EXTRA MILE FOR AT-RISK STUDENTS The trip provides a level of hope for students. Stops on the 30-day bus tour include colleges. SEIU Local 99 Member Tanya Walters (center) with some of the students she mentored on the 2010 Summer Bus Tour. Tanya Walters, a Bus Driver at the Los Angeles Unified School District, remembers wondering why some of the least advantaged students she drove to school each day were not getting the opportunity to participate in field trips. As she dropped kids off at museums and other school outings, it seemed that the C, D and F kids who could really benefit from being exposed to new experiences were being left behind. That was five years ago and today, in addition to being a Bus Driver at LAUSD, Tanya heads the Godparents Youth Organization. Every year, Tanya, and a group of other dedicated SEIU Local 99 members, drive a busload of students to colleges, museums, and historical landmarks throughout the country. This summer, 20 students traveled over 10,000 miles to 28 states, including Louisiana, Ohio, and New York. Their trip was made possible in part by a $25,000 contribution from SEIU Local 99. Just a few months before boarding the bus many of these kids had a grade point average of 2.5 or below. Some had behavioral problems. And some were dealing with very difficult life situations. In order to join the summer trip, students were required to bring up their grade point average The trip provides a level of hope, says Tanya. This is about exposing them to different ideas, places and people. If you don t know what s possible, you can t do better. Many of the 100 kids Tanya has mentored over the years could have taken a different route in life. I remember dropping a student home from school one day and having child protective services waiting for him, says Tanya. The kids on her bus have also been homeless, incarcerated, or dealing with a parent s drug addiction. Tanya calls them leaders in need of direction. Despite all of the obstacles, they are motivated, she says. To date, 30 of them are enrolled in college and one recently graduated. I hope they can hold on to the (bus tour) experience for years to come. To find out more visit 9

10 Union Jobs = Quality Education Growing our union to improve education The quality of education suffers when the quality of education jobs is low. That s why it s important that all education workers from early ed to higher ed join together to ensure respect for every employee in our field and success for every child. With this goal in mind, this summer, SEIU Local 99 began talking to a variety of non-union employees at early education centers, charter schools, colleges, and specialty schools throughout Southern California as part of a special intern program. We knocked on nearly 900 doors and spoke to 244 non-union workers in all job classifications and all levels of education. This was a first step in identifying workers who are interested in forming a union to improve their worksites and the quality of education. Growing our union will also mean raising standards for everyone who works in education. If we neglect to include others in our union, their employers low wage and benefit standards could become our industry s standard, making things worse for all of us, says Jackie Brown, SEIU Local 99 Member and Chair of our Member Organizing Committee. Our own children s success in school depends on our secure jobs with good benefits. We can t afford to let education jobs become bad jobs. I saw that there really is strength in numbers when I was a student activist lobbying in Sacramento against college tuition hikes, says Daphne Brooks, one of the interns who participated in the summer program. I was really touched by the conversations I had this summer with school employees. Many were barely making it financially and were putting up with bad treatment because they had to pay the bills. This isn t the way to improve education. I want to help build the future of education by helping to build SEIU Local 99. As the chair of Local 99 s Member Organizing Committee, we hear too many stories from education workers without union contracts who don t have any say in things affecting their jobs. Many lack even the most basic benefits. They want to be a part of SEIU. Right now in Lynwood, for example, we re trying to help the after-school supervisors become a part of Local 99. They want a union contract. Jackie Brown, Satellite Kitchen Operator Rosa Parks Elementary School in Lynwood If you want to be a part of the Member Organizing Committee and help other workers to form their union, contact Neneki Lee at (213) EXT. 317 or 10

13 VERANO 2010 SERVICE EMPLOYEES INTERNATIONAL UNION SEIU LOCAL 99

14 Tomando Tomando Acción Acción para para Reconstruir a California a California Basta ya! Por años, el Gobernador Schwarzenegger nos ha dado un presupuesto estatal solo con recortes. Para muchos miembros de SEIU Local 99, los recortes presupuestarios han resultado en días libres sin pago, despidos, reducción de horas, u otros sacrificios. Para los estudiantes, los recortes han significado menos servicios, aulas abarrotadas, y un año escolar reducido. Esta no es la manera de reforzar nuestras escuelas ni reconstruir nuestra economía. El 2 de noviembre, nosotros tenemos la oportunidad de Esto es lo que usted puede hacer: cambiar nuestra crisis actual eligiendo a un nuevo Gobernador. Los miembros de SEIU estámos apoyando a Jerry Brown por su compromiso a un presupuesto estatal que incluye ingresos no sólo recortes! Estas elecciónes, no podemos darnos el lujo de sentarnos y dejar que otra persona haga el trabajo. Si está cansado de los recortes y cansado de los días sin pago, este es el momento de tomar acción para la reconstrucción de California! Sí Se Puede! Salga a Caminar! Forme parte de las caminatas que se llevarán acabo los fines de semana para hablar con votantes sobre lo que está en juego en las elecciones para gobernador. Tome el Teléfono! Únase con nosotros durante las tardes para hacer campaña telefónica y hablar con votantes acerca de la importancia de elegir a un gobernador que apoya a las familias trabajadoras. Contribuya a COPE! Necesitamos elegir y responsabilizar a un Gobernador y Legisladores que tomen acción por los asuntos de importancia para nosotros, como la financiación para nuestras escuelas y recursos para buenos trabajos. Nuestras contribuciones voluntarias al Comité de Educación Política (COPE) hacen que estos esfuerzos sean posibles a nivel local, estatal, y federal. Para contribuir, por favor comuníquese con su Delegado o Representante Sindical al Para más información vaya a o llame al El poder político del pueblo sigue ganando! Gracias a los esfuerzos de los miembros de SEIU Local 99, incluyendo nuestro trabajo para elegir al Presidente Obama y nuestras contribuciones al fondo del Comité de Educación Política, el Presidente Obama firmó la ley para Trabajos de Educación que incluye $10 billones para proteger empleos de educación. Se calcula que estos fondos salvarán 160,000 empleos por todo el país. Aproximadamente $1.2 billones llegarán a California. 14

15 Nosotros Estamos Haciendo Nuestra Parte... Los miembros de SEIU Local 99 hemos estado haciendo sacrificios para proteger programas para estudiantes y evitar la pérdida de puestos de trabajo. Días libres sin paga, reducciones al año escolar, y otras medidas para recortar gastos son una respuesta a los recortes masivos al presupuesto de educación de California. Aunque esto ayuda a resolver la crisis inmediata, sabemos que necesitamos soluciones a largo plazo para reforzar nuestras escuelas. Miembros en LAUSD Votan Aceptar Días Libres Sin Pago Los miembros de SEIU Local 99 en las Unidades B y C del Distrito Escolar Unificado de Los Ángeles, incluyendo Asistentes de Educación Especial, Trabajadores de la Cafetería, Conserjes, y otros votaron por aceptar ocho días libres sin pago para el año escolar Estos días, que coinciden con el año escolar reducido aprobado por la Junta Escolar, impiden cientos de despidos. Para el año escolar tradicional, siete días libres sin pago se tomarán durante los días que las escuelas estén cerradas. Esos días son: el 8 y 10 de septiembre, 22, 23 y 24 de noviembre (semana de Acción de Gracias), y 27 y 28 de junio. Un día libre sin pago será asignado por el Distrito. Cada empleado será notificado por su supervisor del día exacto de dicho permiso. Para los días sin pago de los otros calendarios escolares, vaya a o llame al En una votación por separado, los Conductores de Autobuses en LAUSD votaron por aprobar un máximo de cinco días libres sin pago adicionales a fin de salvar los empleos de tiempo completo. 15

16 Miembros en el Distrito de Torrance Aprueban Cinco Días Libres Sin Pago Los miembros de SEIU Local 99 que trabajan en el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Torrance votaron a favor de cinco días libres sin pago en el año escolar Los miembros adoptaron la misma reducción de cinco días de trabajo que los demás empleados. Estos días sin pago, además de jubilaciones y renuncias, han reducido el número de despidos de miembros de SEIU Local 99. Junta del Distrito de Colegios Comunitarios de Ventura Aprueba Despidos A pesar de fuertes alternativas a los despidos presentadas por el equipo de negociación de SEIU Local 99, incluyendo los días libres sin pago, esta primavera la Junta Administrativa aprobó la eliminación o reducción de 24 puestos de empleados clasificados, incluyendo a muchos que proporcionan servicios directos a los estudiantes con discapacidades. En total, durante los últimos dos años, 92 puestos de trabajo clasificado se han reducido en el Distrito. En respuesta, los miembros del sindicato están tomando la iniciativa para elegir a miembros de la Junta que entiendan el valor de los empleados clasificados. Los candidatos han sido invitados a caminar un día en los zapatos de un miembro de Local 99. Además, los miembros celebraron una reunión el 17 de agosto para entrevistar a los candidatos a la Junta. Negociaciones Sobre Despidos En Curso El Administrador Blum con Miembros de SEIU Local 99 en el Colegio de Ventura. Camina Un Día En Mis Zapatos Candidato a Junta Administrativa trabaja un día en la biblioteca del Colegio de Ventura para experimentar el impacto de los recortes presupuestales Stephen Blum, un miembro de la Junta Administrativa del Distrito de Colegios Comunitarios del Condado de Ventura, trabajó este verano con Dana Boynton, Miembro de SEIU Local 99 y una Asistente en la Biblioteca del Colegio de Ventura. El Sr. Blum ayudó a cientos de estudiantes con el proceso de préstamo de libros. En los últimos dos años, la Junta Administrativa ha tratado con los recortes a los fondos estatales reduciendo importantes servicios para los estudiantes y descansando o eliminando los puestos de casi 100 trabajadores clasificados. Muchos miembros de SEIU Local 99 continúan negociando sobre despidos, incluyendo negociaciones para encontrar alternativas a la pérdida de trabajos. Al cierre de esta edición, las negociaciones estaban en curso en los Distritos Escolares de Compton, Lynwood y Santa Monica Malibu, igual que con la Oficina de Educación del Condado de Los Ángeles. Para conocer las últimas actualizaciones visite Yo espero que él entienda que tan importante es el contacto directo con los estudiantes, dijo Dana. El Distrito hace estos recortes y no comprende como se ven afectados los servicios a los estudiantes. Al cierre de esta edición, el Administrador Art Hernández también estaba programado para caminar un día en los zapatos de un miembro de SEIU Local 99. Que las Grandes Petroleras Hagan Su Parte! Debido a las escapatorias fiscales en el presupuesto del Estado, las empresas petroleras en California no pagan impuestos por el petróleo que sacan por debajo de la tierra y el agua. Esto significa que nuestro estado está regalando miles de millones de dólares en descuentos de impuestos a las corporaciones ricas mientras que al resto de nosotros se nos han pedido días libres sin pago y otros recortes para equilibrar el presupuesto. No es justo! Un impuesto sobre las grandes compañías petroleras recaudaría por lo menos $1.2 mil millones para nuestras escuelas y otros servicios públicos. Eso es lo que necesita nuestro estado más ingresos, no recortes! Para aprender más sobre cómo los magnates del petróleo pueden ayudar a reconstruir a California visite 16

17 Brown Vs. Whitman Sobre los Temas que Nos Interesan FINANCIACIÓN PARA NUESTRAS ESCUELAS Brown: Jerry Brown está comprometido a la educación. Él comenzó su carrera política como Miembro del Consejo de Administración del Distrito de Colegios Comunitarios de Los Angeles. Él fundó dos escuelas en Oakland. Como gobernador, él asignará el dinero a los distritos K-12 basados en las necesidades específicas de los estudiantes y aumentará la financiación para los colegios y universidades. También se enfocará en hacer más eficiente la financiación a los colegios comunitarios. Whitman: Meg Whitman ha pedido más recortes a los gastos del estado que dará lugar indudablemente a más recortes a la educación. Ella no tiene ningún plan para traer nuevos ingresos a nuestro estado, significando que nuestras escuelas continuarán luchando. SEGURIDAD EN EL EMPLEO Brown: Jerry Brown siempre ha respaldado a los trabajadores, especialmente cuando él firmó la Ley Rodda, que provee a los empleados de educación clasificados el derecho de negociar un contrato. Whitman: Meg Whitman ya ha propuesto descansar 40,000 trabajadores del estado para cuadrar el presupuesto estatal. SEGURIDAD EN EL RETIRO Brown: Jerry Brown apoya pensiones definidas, tales como CalPERS, en vez de las pensiones del estilo 401k. En un plan definido, sabemos la cantidad de dinero que recibiremos al jubilarnos. Con los planes tipo 401k, nuestros dólares al retirarnos están a la misericordia de la bolsa de valores. Whitman: Meg Whitman ha propuesto eliminar las pensiones y obligar a todos los empleados públicos a participar en los planes arriesgosos tipo 401k. Ella dijo que exigirá que todos los empleados clasificados actuales y otros miembros de CalPERS paguen más al plan y que se retiren más tarde para poder mantener su plan de prestaciones definidas. SUBCONTRATACIÓN DE NUESTROS TRABAJOS Brown: Él se opone a la revocación de la ley SB 1419, que prohíbe la subcontratación de nuestros trabajos de empleo clasificado en las escuelas. Jerry Brown apoya la contratación de trabajadores estatales permanentes de tiempo completo porque proporcionan la regularidad y la estabilidad necesaria. Whitman: Ella apoya la revocación de la ley SB 1419, que subcontrataría nuestros trabajos. Whitman ha propuesto subcontratar los trabajos de varios departamentos estatales a corporaciones privadas. 17

18 Miembros Llevan Temas de Educación Temprana Directamente al Congreso Miembros de SEIU Local 99 LaRonda Davison y Gayle Williams se reúnen con la Representante Laura Richardson para impulsar más financiación para Head Start, cuidado de niños y otros programas educativos. Por Gayle Williams Trabajadora de Servicios para Familias CDI Head Start LaRonda Davison y yo, ambas representantes en la Mesa Directiva de SEIU de Local 99, viajamos a Washington, DC. para hacer cabildeo ante el Congreso por financiación para la educación temprana. Fue genial representar a nuestros hermanos y hermanas de SEIU Local 99. Me emocioné al ver que nuestra Unión Internacional tomó la iniciativa para asegurar que los trabajadores en programas financiados por fondos federales en todo el país tengan una voz. Les explicamos a los Congresistas cómo un aumento a la financiación para la educación temprana apoyará a los niños y a las familias. También les explicamos a estos líderes que queremos establecer el respeto por nuestra profesión mejorando las oportunidades de educación y avance profesional y aumentando nuestros salarios en comparación con otros trabajadores de la educación. Queremos ser reconocidos como profesionales de educación temprana, no niñeras. Queremos ser reconocidos como profesionales de educación temprana, no como niñeras. Me animé al hablar con la Representante Laura Richardson, que nos dijo que podemos contar definitivamente con su ayuda. También visitamos con el asistente legislativo de la Senadora Barbará Bóxer quien nos informó que la Senadora Bóxer ha estado en la vanguardia en cuanto las necesidades de la educación temprana. Incluso, antes de que el Presidente Obama lanzara su propuesta presupuestaria, la Senadora Bóxer había pedido un aumento a la financiación para la educación temprana. Antes de que comenzáramos nuestras visitas al capitolio, escuchamos de nuestra recién elegida presidenta de la unión, Mary Kay Henry la primer mujer presidenta de nuestra unión internacional! Sus palabras nos animaron aún más con la valentía para hablar acerca de lo que esta financiación podría hacer por nuestros programas de Head Start, centros de cuidado infantil, cuidado de niños y proveedores acreditados, tales como ampliar los servicios a más niños, aumentar los servicios de nutrición y obesidad infantil, y mantener servicios de alta calidad y los trabajadores que prestan esos servicios. 18

19 REFORMA MIGRATORIA Todos Somos Iguales Miembros de SEIU Local 99 Toman Acción por la Reforma Migratoria El 29 de julio por la mañana, los miembros de SEIU Local 99 Nadia Lizarraga y Gamaliel Gama Andrade abordaron un autobús a Arizona. Se unieron con cientos de sindicalistas y activistas de la comunidad y viajaron sin papeles para desafiar la SB 1070, la ley de inmigración de Arizona que entraba en vigor ese día. El día antes, un juez federal de primera instancia anuló partes de la ley, asegurando que la policía no podría utilizar perfiles raciales para investigar el estatus migratorio de una persona. A su regreso de Arizona, Nadia y Gama respondieron a preguntas acerca de la necesidad de una reforma migratoria. Por qué te uniste al viaje para protestar la ley de Arizona? Nadia: La gente necesita saber que este tipo de asi llamada reforma migratoria se puede propagar a California. Tenemos que controlar la inmigración, pero tenemos que tomar los pasos correctos. Necesitamos leyes que protejan la humanidad de las personas. Gama: Tenemos que hacer todo lo posible para impedir leyes como la SB1070. Tenemos que arreglar el sistema, pero el gobierno federal tiene que hacer algo sobre la reforma migratoria. No le corresponde a cada estado hacer lo que quieran. Qué tiene de mal el sistema actual de inmigración? Gama: El sistema actual necesita una revisión completa. Tenemos gente aquí que sólo quieren trabajar y contribuir al país, pero viven con temor. Cada vez que van al trabajo tienen el temor de no regresar a sus casas. Hay niños cuyos padres están atrapados en el limbo. Es un sistema que separa a las familias. Nadia: Las leyes se aplican en ciertas áreas y no en otras. Por ejemplo, está bien que los empleadores tengan a trabajadores que trabajan bajo el radar, pero no que esos trabajadores vengan aquí. Los empleadores están usando a los trabajadores para su beneficio y conveniencia. Por qué es la reforma migratoria una cuestión sindical? Gama: Nosotros estamos luchando por la misma causa, el derecho a trabajar con dignidad por un salario digno. Si a la mayoría de los trabajadores se les pagaría un salario decente, y no por debajo de la mesa, le ayudaría a la economía de EE.UU. Nadia: Es también para la protección de los trabajadores. (Los trabajadores indocumentados) trabajan muy duro y a veces son explotados. SEIU Apoya Una Reforma Migratoria Que: Reemplaza el movimiento de indocumentados con un movimiento legal de inmigrantes basado en una demanda de trabajo real, que les provee todas las protecciones laborales. Le da una entrada al sistema a los trabajadores indocumentados con los requisitos de que pasen pruebas de antecedents penales, paguen multas, aprendan inglés, sean contribuyentes, y se hagan ciudadanos de EE.UU. Reduce los atrasos que separan a los seres queridos para que las familias no tengan que aguantar años, hasta decadas, de separación innecesaria. Une el control de la frontera con reformas inteligentes en el trabajo incluyendo protecciones laborales vigorosas que elevan las normas para todos los trabajdores.

20 CAMINO AL TRIUNFO CONDUCTOR DE AUTOBÚS DE LAUSD HACE GRAN ESFUERZO POR ESTUDIANTES EN PELIGRO Tanya Walters, miembro de SEIU Local 99 (centro), con algunos de los estudiantes con los que fue mentor en la gira del verano El viaje proporciona un nivel de esperanza para los estudiantes. Las paradas en el viaje de 30 días incluyen universidades. Tanya Walters, una conductora de autobús en el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Los Ángeles, recuerda preguntarse por qué algunos de los estudiantes menos favorecidos que ella llevaba a la escuela no tenían la oportunidad de participar en los paseos de campo. Cuando pasaba dejando a los niños a los museos y otras excursiones de la escuela, le parecía que se estaban quedando atrás los niños con las calificaciones C, D y F que realmente podrían beneficiarse de ser expuestos a nuevas experiencias. Eso fue hace cinco años y hoy, además de ser un conductor de autobús en LAUSD, Tanya dirige la organización juvenil Godparents. Cada año, Tanya, y un grupo de otros miembros dedicados de SEIU Local 99, conducen un autobús lleno de estudiantes a universidades, museos y monumentos históricos del país. Este verano, 20 estudiantes viajaron más de 10,000 millas a 28 estados, incluyendo Luisiana, Ohio, y Nueva York. Su viaje fue hecho posible en parte por una contribución de $25,000 de SEIU Local 99. Apenas algunos meses antes de subir al autobús muchos de estos estudiantes tenían un promedio de calificaciones de 2.5 puntos o menos. Algunos tenían problemas de comportamiento. Y algunos se ocupaban de situaciones muy difíciles de la vida. Antes de viajar, los estudiantes tenían que mejorar sus grados. El viaje proporciona un nivel de esperanza, dice Tanya. Esto es para exponerlos a diversas ideas, lugares y personas. Si uno no sabe lo que es posible, uno no podrá mejorar. Muchos de los 100 niños que Tanya ha guiado a travez de los años habrían podido tomar una diversa ruta en la vida. Yo recuerdo un día que deje a un estudiante en su casa después de clases y estaban los representantes de servicios protectores de niños esperándolo, dice Tanya. Los niños en su autobús también han estado sin hogar, presos, o se ocupan de la drogadicción de los padres. Tanya los llama líderes en necesidad de dirección. A pesar de todos los obstáculos, están motivados, dice Tanya. Hasta esta fecha, 30 de ellos están matriculados en la universidad y uno de ellos se graduó. El éxito es la meta final. Espero que puedan aferrarse a la experiencia (de la gira) por muchos años. Para más información visite 20
