I Choose My Union

Over the next year you will face a choice

Standing Together

  • Stand together with 2 million SEIU members across the country, fighting back against attacks on our union and our workplaces.
     
  • Stand together to protect our contract, our wages, our benefits and our working conditions.
     
  • Stand together by committing to stay with our union because without a union the consequences are real for working people all over the country.

 

Or you can choose to stand-alone and experience what has happened to people around the country

  • Workers in “Right-to-Work” states make $6,109 less per year than their counterparts in collective bargaining states.
     
  • Union members in Wisconsin saw an immediate 24% cutback to their benefits after the passage of anti-union legislation in 2010.
     
  • Since 2010, state workers in Wisconsin have not been allowed to negotiate a salary increase of any more than 2% total for the last seven years
     
  • Workers in Wisconsin have lost the right to negotiate over benefits, retirement and working conditions.
