Why Facebook?

It’s a virtual place where we can share union and labor news. It’s also where we highlight workers’ issues, such as recently when our own SEIU members at Community Child Care Council of Santa Clara County (4Cs) made news calling out the dysfunctions and lack of transparency at the agency. See their story published by Metro Newspaper!

Be sure to like and share it to show your support.


The correct answer is B. Right now, we reach about 47% of the workers we represent by email. To be able to communicate with members, we need your personal email.

What’s faster than email? Text messaging.
