“First of all I would like to congratulate Doreen Souza in her new position as internal organizer with SEIU Local 521. She’s a person I know personally and trust! SEIU has been a quiet transition for Kings County employees, which I am proud to be employed by. Working for and with the county has been a positive experience for me. Decisions affecting all of us that are being made by county supervisors and department heads, remain to be in the best interest for its employees and our future.SEIU seems to be making comfortable and intelligent efforts to the employees of Kings County. I look forward to a good co-existence among the county and its employees with SEIU as our Official Union.”

“I’ve been with the county for 18 years. I’ve never heard of Bill Shawhan calling a meeting of the rank-and-file membership or asking our input. It always appeared like he made his own deals.Communication is always key in my book. With SEIU we could have regular meetings where we can give our input.”

“We all need to stick together. Being divided doesn’t accomplish anything but continued empowerment of the management and continued animosity between the workers. SEIU is offering and delivering much better representation. Look at the facts, stop listening to lies.”
