Statewide DLC Tour Building the Power We Need to Win a Great Contract
How do we win the pay and benefits we deserve when bargaining starts next year? SEIU Local 1000 members have the answer: stand together with workers across the state to fight for our contract.
For more than a month, Local 1000 statewide leaders have been meeting with represented employees where they work, to talk about the importance of membership in our Union and how a strong membership will impact contract negotiations that are less than a year away.
Across the state, state employees are stepping up to join Local 1000 because they agree that we can’t win a good contract next year unless we project membership power. Just last week, more than 300 non-members became part of the Local 1000 Family.
“We are re-energizing this Union to do the work needed to strengthen Local 1000,” said Board Chair Hall. “And generating the leverage we need to begin negotiations in a stronger position begins with generating more members.”
“With only 53% membership, the State can treat us any way they want,” added Hall, who helped his fellow leaders launch a campaign targeting 64% membership by March 2023, when formal negotiations are likely to begin.
