Do you have a bold vision for the future? Become an SEIU International Delegate

Article Published on November 16, 2023

Elected representatives and delegates of member-run SEIU Local 1000 work to shape the direction of our union and our allies at SEIU International in our fight for better wages, benefits, and working conditions. Our leaders are at the forefront of organizing our efforts to give our members, and all working families, the opportunity to have a good life, live in sustainable communities, and enjoy the fruits of social and economic justice.

SEIU International Delegates are members of SEIU locals from across the nation who act as the representational voices of their respective locals at an international level. Delegates bring forth the issues of their fellow workers and their Local at the SEIU International Convention and help to provide a diverse perspective on national and international worker affairs.

Delegates are elected every four (4) years by members of their respective Local. In concert with other union leaders, we work to advance the issues most important to working people: a living wage, safe and secure jobs, and equity and equality for all, on the job, at home, and in our communities.

The SEIU International Convention is May 19 – 24,2024,  in Philadelphia, PA.

As a convention delegate, you would be representing the interests of the 96,000 state workers represented by Local 1000. Delegates attend meetings, vote on resolutions, elect international officers, approve budgets, and help shape the future of the SEIU organization as a whole, including policies that impact the work of SEIU Local 1000.
