What’s a union?
A union protects, guides and supports a group of workers who have chosen to come together to improve their quality of work and job security.
It can be easy to feel isolated and alone, but together with your colleagues you have tremendous collective power.
A union will provide the support and safety to stand up to your boss, make sure you are heard and get the respect you deserve.
We fight for you in bad times and help you grow in good times by providing you access to resources, training, education and benefit programs.

SEIU Healthcare is like every other union; they won’t do much for us.
SEIU Healthcare is not like other unions, but rather a specialized Healthcare union that shares our values and understands our concerns. They understand the challenges we face on the job and know the limitations of the healthcare system.
Unions will make us strike, and that’s bad for our pockets and clients!
A strike is a right that we decide on collectively and can exercise to get what we want when we need to. The union does not make decisions for us, instead providing the tools and options that will help us find justice and respect at work.
Unions are after my money.
It’s very simple, We pay 1.8% of our monthly salary to get representation, protection, job security and stability. That’s about the same price as a daily cup of coffee! Additionally, our dues are 100% tax deductible, which makes it practically free.
Unions protect bad workers and do not allow good workers to shine.
The union protects our right to work in a stable, healthy and safe environment that gives us the strength to address workplace issues and have opportunities for growth. Their job is to protect us and to protect our workplace, which leaves no room for bad workers.
