SEIU. Unstoppable.
Together, we win. Tens of thousands of home care, fast-food, child care, airport workers and adjunct professors have won raises for 11 million workers in the growing Fight for $15 and union rights movement because of SEIU members and leaders. We are a force in bringing racial justice, immigration reform and workers’ rights to the forefront in the 2016 election. Join us at the 2016 International Convention and help continue the fight for justice.

The SEIU International Convention is held every four years to set the policy and direction for two million SEIU members. SEIU delegates will elect our International union officers, and establish the goals and strategies to meet the new realities for workers and to build power for working people.

This year will be an exciting Convention as we enter into the 2016 national presidential race, and debate and vote on Convention resolutions that will guide our union’s work over the next 4 years. Every elected delegate will be expected to help implement the resolutions adopted at the SEIU International Convention.

All members of SEIU Local 521 who have been members of Local 521 in good standing, with no lapse in dues payment for a total of two years, are eligible for nomination and election to be a delegate to the upcoming SEIU International Convention.

    Where exactly in Detroit is the convention being held? ALthough I now reside in California, I’m originally from Michigan. If attending I would want to know how close to family in that area I would be staying.

    Let the Leaders know many of us are angry and disappointed that the powerful .01% of SEIU made the decision on behalf of the 99% to make an early endorsement of Clinton in the primary. This is undemocratic and exemplifies the main problem with our political system. I ended my biweekly COPE contributions because of it.
