School Support Workers Bounce SEIU, Join Independent Local

A group of about 500 education support employees in the Poway Unified School District in southern California ended their 28-year relationship with SEIU and voted to join the independent Poway School Employees Association, which already represents 1,500 other classified employees in the district.

PSEA captured about 96 percent of the votes cast. Supporters of the decertification vote had complained of “unresponsive SEIU representatives, high SEIU dues, and a lack of resources, training and assistance.”

Teachers in Poway are represented by the AFT-affiliated Poway Federation of Teachers.
