Every Wednesday, hundreds of SEIU Local 1000-represented employees are joining a lively conversation with Local 1000 leadership. They’re getting current news, learning about important issues and opportunities at the Union.

“Straight Talk” is hosted by Board Chair Bill Hall, who is often joined by our statewide vice presidents, by Local 1000 staff, and guests.
