A Health Survey for SEIU members in the San Joaquin Valley (Fresno County, Tulare County, Kings County, City of Hanford, Kings Superior Courts, Fresno Superior Courts, First Student Chapter, Student Transportation of America, City of Wasco)
The San Joaquin Valley is a challenging environment for health and healthcare. As union members, we are at the forefront of working to improve quality-of-life standards for our communities, but as workers we face our own personal health-related issues. This brief survey is designed as the first step to help assess how workers feel about their health/health care coverage and identify wellness programs that could promote better health outcomes.
Take the survey now!
Children Over Politics
Do you have a child who could learn and be passionate about something meaningful? Maybe you know a young person who would benefit from volunteering? If so, we are looking for the future of the labor movement between the ages of 15-25 to engage in our new youth advocacy group called Children Over Politics.
Coming together, and fighting strong together, SEIU Local 521 members in Fresno County were able to secure a contract that puts us back on the road to recovery after years of cuts.
The election of Bargaining Unit 2 over the past month had serious flaws and errors and we will be filing charges with PERB to contest the results. Read more.
