Who is ULU Local 100?

Local 100’s mission is to organize and represent unorganized service sector workers in the middle south states of Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas, and allow our members to create a vehicle to allow them a clear voice and real power in their workplace and their communities.  After more than 25 years as an SEIU local, in October 2009 Local 100 became independent again.

ULU Membership Bar-B-Q in Shreveport March 31st 2011 PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 06 April 2011 00:00

Over 45 members came to the Local 100 Bar-B-Q at the AFL-CIO hall from CADDO Head Start and Nexion Nursing Home. We discussed the upcoming vote on Head Start funding and made a commitment to go to the Nation Head Start Association web page to send letters to President Obama, both Louisiana U.S. Senators and the Shreveport Congressman asking them to not cut Head Start funding. CADDO members took membership cards to sign up new members at their centers. Our Nexion members spoke about the problems with the Administrator and the supervisor in the kitchen and we made a plan to confront her about her abusive behavior. Everyone got full of bar-b-q ribs, chicken, pork chops and peach cobbler. Special thanks for cooking go out to Mr. Jackson and Mr. Adkins. Members were very happy with the new Local 100 T-Shirt with nine members buying a t-shirt and the plan is to go to the next CADOO Board meeting with everyone wearing their shirt. The 50/50 raffle was also a big success.

 
LARC Meetings held in Lafayette's Acadian Park PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 17 March 2011 14:20

Every second Saturday of the month LARC employees meet in the Acadian Park on East ALexander in Lafayette, LA to discuss issues that concern their work as healthcare employees that work with the Lafayette area's developmentally disadvantaged citizens.  Local 100 members at LARC have worked with the company for many years, some of them have been there for upwards of 20 years. After decades of dedication to the clients and the company there are still issues that need to be resolved for LARC employees.

Our members have deep love and concern for the clients who they see everyday.  Recently, Governor Bobby Jindal cut the reimbursement rate to the healthcare industry and this affects many healthcare employees that are Personal care Aides across the state, and most importantly it affects their clients.  Cilents who receive one-on-one care have seen the hours that PCAs can take care of them cut.  That means that these clients are forced into precarious situations when they are unsupervised and means that many of them can no longer be the independent force that they were prior to the cuts.  It also means that our personal care aides have seen their hours cut as well.

Local 100 is organizing community home and health workers across the state to combat these cuts and address the developmentally disadvantaged people of Louisiana by becoming involved in this movement to have healthcare fully funded while at the same time addressing the individual issues with each of their employers.

Local 100 in Dallas Politics PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 23 August 2010 16:59

On Thursday, August 12, former Dallas councilwoman Diane Ragsdale called a meeting of the representatives of people likely to be hurt by the Council’s plan to balance the city budget by laying off city workers, cutting libraries, closing swimming pools and recreation centers, and cutting funds to the African-American museum and other services and institutions important to Dallas citizens. Local 100 was invited to represent labor.

SEIU's position regarding our members and the other city workers is as follows:

  • We need more tax revenue instead of service cuts in this city in order to give our members who earn the minimum wage a chance to win pay raises by fighting for their share of city revenue.
  • Balancing the city budget with layoffs is false economy: layoffs COST money. It costs the county hospital money, depletes food banks of their resources, costs social-service agencies money, drains unemployment compensation, causes more foreclosures, etc.
  • The remaining workers have an increased workload, but their pay doesn’t go up. As a result, layoffs create an overworked, underpaid and demoralized work force.

We also pointed out the fallacy behind the Mayor’s assertion that low tax rates alone will attract business. Cities where people have money to spend on goods and services attract businesses, we said. Councilperson Angela Hunt is one of several officials who are on the fence on this issue and the plan is to hold a conference call with her next Tuesday.

 

 
Dallas Sanitation workers, seek Living Wage, respect PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 22 July 2010 20:05

After a panel discussion, members rally at the Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial statue.

Local 100 – United Labor Unions held a panel discussion at Mount Olive Lutheran Church on July 17, 2010, concerning City of Dallas sanitation workers being forced to make ends meet on the minimum wage of $7.25. During the panel discussion, the workers made clear they need a Living Wage (which is nowhere near $7.25 an hour). The solution is getting the mayor and City Council of Dallas to understand these workers are humans doing a very difficult job in 100 degree weather. But the job must be done to make the City function. As one of the signs at the rally said “I AM A MAN” which is the same sign used in 1968 in Memphis when garbage workers went on strike trying to get paid above the minimum wage. It is hard to believe that workers are fighting the same struggle in Dallas in 2010, over 40 years later. Martin Luther King, Jr. was in Memphis in 1968, speaking up for garbage workers when he was assassinated. After the panel discussion, Local 100 marched to the Martin Luther King, Jr. statue for a rally in memory of the Memphis struggle--in hope that someday the City of Dallas garbage workers will go to “the mountain top” and finally earn a salary that will enable them to provide for their families and live with dignity and respect in their community.
