SEIU Delegate Elections


SEIU International Convention Delegate Election Information

Our SEIU Local 1000 members have voted, and new SEIU International Convention Delegates have been elected. These new delegates have stepped up to the challenges faced by the organized labor movement by becoming participants in the upcoming SEIU International Convention, in Chicago. 

Convention Delegates will join a team of visionaries who are actively working toward a brighter future for tomorrow’s workplace, creating new campaigns to give all working families the opportunity to have a good life, live in sustainable communities, and enjoy the fruits of social, economic, and environmental justice.

Our national Fight for $15 campaign to raise the wage for tens of millions of working families is just one example of the kinds of initiatives that come from these leaders working together with other committed activists to empower our communities and workplaces and effect change for all.

Convention Delegates will not only have the opportunity to represent the interests of our 96,000 Local 1000 members to our SEIU family across the country, but will also play an important role in shaping the future of the labor movement as a whole, by building foundations and fostering relationships with other labor organizations across the country and around the globe.

Convention Delegates will vote on important proposals and vote to elect the officers of SEIU International. More importantly, they’ll have a voice in the activities that matter most to you and your community.

The SEIU International Convention is April 24 – 27 in Chicago, IL.
