Listen and Talk with SEIU Local 1000 Leadership on “Straight Talk” Each Wednesday


Each week, our represented employees are invited to talk with SEIU Local 1000 Leadership to ask questions and to learn about important issues and opportunities at the Union. Interested in contract negotiations? Opportunities in our apprentice program? Telework? Essential Worker Premium Pay? Join us on Wednesday nights!

“Straight Talk” is hosted by Board Chair Bill Hall, who is often joined by our statewide vice presidents, by Local 1000 staff, and guests.

On May 18, we talked with CSEA’s Lisa Fong about how Union membership entitles you and your family to a number of additional benefits, discounts and savings that can easily add up to more than double your monthly dues.

On May 25, we’ll talk about how Politics Matter to Local 1000, and we’ll hear from our Political Director, Omega Brewer.

If you’d like to take part in the weekly Zoom call, registration announcements are sent via email each Monday.

If you’d like to watch, you have two options: the call is live (and archived) on the Local 1000 Facebook page. You can also watch the discussion the next day at There, you’ll find an archive of past editions of “Straight Talk” covering a range of diverse topics.

We hope you’ll join the conversations that are helping move Local 1000 forward
