Community Power

Community Power

Community Power focuses on building power where we live to exert the power necessary to achieve the Local 1000 Purpose Statement.

In 2020 we have been focused on advocating for affordable housing and renter protections in Sacramento. Interested members meet monthly in the evening on the 3rd Monday of each month. 

While Community Power is presently focused in the Sacramento region, we will expand to other areas where there is member density and member leadership willing to engage in community issues.

Are you a leader in your community or interested in becoming one? Do you have a vision for what your community could become Join us! For more information contact: communitypower@seiu1000.org

WIN – Hostile Work Environment Corrected

After a supervisor’s repeated micro-management of a Unit 4 employee at a Southern California CDCR facility created a hostile and unsafe work environment, our representational team requested a “Cease and Desist” in support of our member.
