SEIU Michigan, represents nearly 30,000 public and private sector workers across Michigan.
Our members, who belong to four unique Locals (SEIU 517M, SEIU Healthcare Michigan, SEIU Local 1 and Michigan Corrections Organization) care for the sick, repair our bridges and roads, protect our communities, clean and guard public spaces, and work each day to ensure public services are delivered to ALL Michiganders.
Working in the healthcare industry, the public sector and in property services, we believe in the power of joining together on the job to win higher wages and benefits while fighting for a more just society and an economy that works for all of us - Black, brown, white, Asian Pacific Islander, and Native -, not just corporations and the wealthy. We believe that we cannot achieve economic justice without securing racial justice, and vice versa. We are committed to winning Unions for All workers and an inclusive, multi-racial democracy in our state and country.
The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has laid bare the vast inequities in our economy and in our democracy that have existed for far too long. Times like these require leadership that moves us beyond business as usual which is why SEIU Michigan has come together to demand that our elected representatives, at all levels, act with urgency to protect all workers, no matter their race or where they are from.
It is essential, now more than ever, that Government along with the largest, wealthiest, and most powerful corporations and industries show leadership by looking past their bottom lines to do what is right for workers. Government must take strong action to check corporate power and put workers at the table to address this crisis and build a just, inclusive new economy with Unions for All at its core.
