Become a Local 1000 Job Steward
Hello SEIU Local 1000 Represented State Workers -
Our Job Stewards—nearly 1,000 strong and growing—are on the front lines of representing our members, enforcing our hard-earned contract rights, and building member strength. We hope you’ll consider stepping up and becoming a Job Steward.

If you are interested in becoming a Job Steward*, please submit your application packet to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 19, 2022.
