Care Package Drive for U. S. Military

SEIU 521 is leading a care package drive for our service members overseas and veterans at home. Our goal is to put together 521 care packages and pay for shipping between now and Veterans Day—November 11.

The Community First Contract Action Team (CATs) is working with multiple community-based organizations to reach our goal. Our Union will be having a meeting to reach our unit goal of sponsoring two packages each.

If you are interested in participating, or for more information, please contact a Contract Action Team member.

Santa Clara County wage increase comes just in time for the Holidays
SEIU 521 won an important wage increase victory this past August when our SEIU 521 Community First campaign pushed the Santa Clara County to offer a 5% wage increase (over two years) on the same day members were scheduled to vote for a strike date.

Community First: Not just a slogan
We stood together and put Community First.
