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

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.

 
Louisiana Local 100 files a union petition for the meter readers in the New Orleans area PDF Print E-mail

United Labor Unions Local 100 filed a petition on behalf of the Orleans and Jefferson Parish meter readers.  This is a unit of approximately 52 men and women who are stating their need for job protection and job security.  These men and women are out there rain or shine, in the heat and in the bitter cold.  As one of our long time meter readers says "When it gets too hot they take the mules and the donkeys off the street, but they don't take the meter readers."  Some of the meter readers of Jefferson and Orleans Parish have been working for years, some decades to make sure that Entergy clients get their utilities read in a timely manner so that our meters are as accurate as they can be.  In return, all they are asking for is to be treated with dignity and respect,  and a voice.

United Labor Unions Local 100 is proud to work towards a union election with these hard working men and women.

 
LARC Meetings held in Lafayette's Acadian Park PDF Print E-mail

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.
