Why Membership Matters
Join your co-workers in keeping your union strong by becoming a member or by renewing your membership
Our strength lies in our unity and our numbers. With more members, we have more power to win better contracts and a stronger voice to protect our rights, healthcare and retirement benefits. Members are also eligible for many exclusive benefits, including the SEIU free college program, scholarships, discounts, and more.
If you are already a member, we still need you to renew your membership. Recommitting to the union shows our employers that we're sticking together to protect our contract, win better pay and benefits, and make our voices heard, no matter the attacks on working people.
