Next Wednesday on “Straight Talk” – SEIU International’s Heather Conroy and the Power of Membership

Article Published on July 8, 2022

In less than a year, we’ll be negotiating our next contract with the State, and the key to winning a great contract is member strength.

On Wednesday, July 13, SEIU International Vice President Conroy joins Board Chair Hall for a special edition of our weekly leadership call.

They’ll be joined on the call by union members from Colorado, Sacramento, and from Local 1000 to talk about the value—and the results—that come from member power.

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

If you’d like to take part in the weekly Zoom call, no pre-registration is necessary. Use the link below if you’d like to join the conversation:
