The 2021 Tentative Agreement Vote Results Are In!

Voting and Informational meetings began Sunday, November 28, 2021, at the Steelworkers Auditorium and for the first time, we hosted informational meetings/voting in multiple areas spanning from Victorville to Murrieta, Riverside to Palm Springs.

Today, December 3, 2021, we returned to the Steelworker Auditorium in Fontana, CA, and hosted our last round of informational meetings and voting. At 5:00 P.M., voting ended and we began counting the ballots.

The members of USW Local 7600, overwhelmingly ratified our Local and National tentative agreements by a 95% YES vote!

The Local and National Agreements will take effect once all the other Unions in the Alliance of Healthcare Unions have ratified the tentative agreement.

A note from our USW Local 7600 President, Micheal Barnett:

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every member who stood up and were willing to fight in SOLIDARITY for a fair contract. We overcame because of our unity with one another and because we came together with all Alliance members. Without you, we would not have won.

A special thanks goes out to our Vice President Norberto Gomez for always having my back, our local officers, our relentless bargaining committee, USW District 12, the International Union, the Alliance of Healthcare Unions, our incredible communications/media team, and our amazing Communications & Action Team (CAT) members for all your work!”

In Solidarity,

USW Local 7600
