News and Events

Local 1000 is on the move and this is where to go to get the latest news and information on our activities. This is also where we keep members up-to-date on the issues that are important to them.


SEIU Local 1000 COVID-19 Resources

SEIU Local 1000 has been in regular communication with Governor Newsom’s administration, CalHR, and state departments to ensure that CDPH and CDC guidelines are being followed and that our members’ health and safety are at the forefront of decision-making during this time of crisis.

We have developed a set of principles to guide our conversations with the various state agencies and departments. These principles reflect our purpose, our values, and our fundamental belief that employers should:

  • Protect employees from financial hardship during a time of crisis
  • Develop and implement telework policies and flexible work schedules wherever possible
  • Provide employees the necessary equipment to do our jobs and the proper environment to remain safe in the process
  • Communicate regularly and often with employees to educate, empower, and reduce the spread of the virus

There are resources available to supplement what departments are providing and to educate our members and the public on the most up-to-date information concerning COVID-19.

Information & guidance for SEIU Members

Online Resources: We will be regularly updating this page with relevant information for SEIU Local 1000 members.

Member Resource Center: We are adapting our Member Resource Center (MRC) operation to be able to respond to all of the calls in this environment. Members will be able to leave a message at 866.471.7348 which will be routed and responded to directly from the appropriate person inside the organization. Those calls will be responded to during normal MRC hours of Monday – Friday from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.

2020 Census

Local 1000 is working to build power in 2020 by ensuring that we have a fair and accurate 2020 Census so that all communities have access to good jobs, resources and a strong voice.  

This is an opportunity for us to shape our future and exert our voices. Not only is the census linked to the amount of federal money that California receives, as well as where and how that money is spent, but a census undercount would deprive millions of working family’s proper representation in Congress to get those resources.
