More Workers Leave SEIU Local 221 in San Diego

“Another group of workers recently flew the purple pond here in San Diego,” says a reader. Just one year after voting to join SEIU Local 221, a unit of 402 employees at the San Diego Regional Center voted to decertify the local union.

5) San Diego County Crafts Unit
6) San Diego Regional Center
