SEIUlogo.gif

Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is the fastest-growing union in North America, with 2.1 million members across the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico working in three service industry "divisions." It was a member of the AFL-CIO until 2005, when the SEIU president removed the labor union from it.

Industry divisions

Health Care - The over 1 million members in the health care field include nurses, LPNs, doctors, lab technicians, nursing home workers, home care workers.

Public Services - The 850,000 members in this sector are local and state government workers, public school employees, bus drivers, and child care providers. SEIU is the second largest union of public service employees.

Property Services - The 225,000 workers who protect and clean commercial and residential office buildings. This includes 50,000 private security officers and public safety personnel.

Leadership

  • Anna Burger - Burger is SEIU Secretary-Treasurer and the first chair of Change to Win. The Wall Street Journal's 2007 Top 50 Women to Watch sited Burger and Fortune Magazine sited her as "the most powerful woman in the labor movement."[2]
  • Eliseo Medina - Medina is SEIU Executive Vice President, leading efforts in the South and Southwest. The Los Angeles Times called him, "one of the most successful labor organizers in the country."[5]
  • Dave Regan - Regan was recently elected to serve as SEIU Executive Vice President at the 2008 National Convention. He is a political and healthcare reform activist with almost 20 years of leadership experience in the labor movement.[6]
  • Tom Woodruff - Woodruff is SEIU Executive Vice President. He has overseen organizing for SEIU since 1996 and has served as a top-ranking officer since 2000.[7][8]

Andy Stern's predecessor is current AFL-CIO President Emeritus, John Sweeney.

Projects

Forming Change to Win

SEIU helped form Change to Win. Along with with four other Change to Win unions, the Teamsters for a Democratic Union, UNITE HERE, the United Food and Commercial Workers, and the Carpenters, SEIU disaffiliated from the AFL-CIO.

SEIU, the Laborers' International Union of North America (LiUNA)[10], and the United Farm Workers are now developing strategies and organizing campaigns together.[11]

Americans for Health Care

This SEIU project is an effort to unite working families, small business owners, seniors, health care workers, community leaders, and policy makers to make health care cost less for consumers. The group says it is using a grassroots push in states across the map including Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, New Hampshire, Oregon, Rhode Island and Washington for health care policies will increase access to quality, affordable health care. According to the website, more than 350,000 "Health Care Voters" made the group's pledge to make health care a priority.[11]

PurpleOcean.org

This online Internet-based union affiliate is a project to connect union grassroots efforts online. For example, thousands of members protesting Wal-Mart's business model used the site to take action against it. Now, PurpleOcean.org redirects back to SEIU, but the original PurpleOcean.org was its own website.[11]

Immigrant workers

SEIU is helping ensure immigrant workers have a shot at the American dream. Representing more immigrants than any other union, SEIU has been a leading voice for immigration reform that rewards work and improves conditions for all working people in this country. SEIU helped pave the way for organized labor to support legalization for hard-working, tax-paying immigrants, and the union's civic participation program encourages immigrants to actively participate in our communities and our democracy.[11]

Health care projects

SEIU covers 2.1 million members working in the health care field, including 110,000 nurses and 40,000 doctors. Its Nurse Alliance was a lobbying effort behind the first federal "safe staffing" legislation. The legislation worked to establish minimum nurse-to-patient ratios. They also lobbied for a bill that would limit mandatory overtime in hospitals.

The project partnered with providers like Kaiser Permanente and the League of Voluntary Hospitals in New York for their union lobbying and organizing efforts..

SEIU is the largest union of long-term care workers in the United States, covering 500,000 home care and 160,000 nursing home workers.

In April 2005, 41,000 home care workers in Michigan joined SEIU along with California, Oregon, Washington, Illinois New York and other members' locations.[11]

Janitorial workers

Over 5,000 janitors in Houston formed a union in late 2005 and then joined SEIU janitors in almost 30 other major cities. According to the SEIU website, the Houston janitors will soon begin negotiating a "master agreement."[11]

Security workers

SEIU has made the U.S. private security industry a project by partnering with unions abroad (such as Sweden-based Securitas AB), community allies, civil rights organizations, community groups and churches to lobby for "career growth for a largely African-American workforce." SEIU represents more than 50,000 officers who work in the public and private sector.[11]

Child care workers

In Illinois, 49,000 family child care providers joined SEIU and won a contract including training incentives, health benefits, and pay increases, they raised the bar for quality child care services across the country. SEIU represents more than 200,000 people who work in child care and early education.[11]

Wal-Mart workers

SEIU led public campaigns across the map in 2005 against corporate Wal-Mart, successfully. In New Hampshire and California, workers fought corporate retirement security changes and helped pass bill in Maryland to be sure profitable corporations (like Wal-Mart) pay "their fair share" of their employee's healthcare. SEIU members helped raise $11.8 billion for public services in 15 states. The group helped get a pair of ballot initiatives passed that raised California revenues to maintain emergency centers in Los Angeles and Alameda Counties.[11]

SEIU local bases have worked with the Wal-Mart Alliance for Reform Now.

Since Sliced Bread

Since Sliced Bread was a project with the SEIU, to which the Open Society Institute contributed a $100,000 grand in 2006 for a 15-month term.[12]

Official partnerships

On SEIU's website, they list the following global partners:
