Dear Local 1 members,
Today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the wrong side of history in a case that the rich and powerful hope will further rig the economy in their favor. The high court’s decision in Janus v. AFSCME puts one more roadblock in the way for public employees to exercise their right to join a union.
But we won’t let the rich and and powerful divide us. No court case can keep us from sticking together and standing up for the good, union jobs our communities need to thrive!
Local 1 members are united. In fact, more and more workers are joining our union. From security officers in Milwaukee to airport workers in Chicago, working people from across the Midwest want to be part of our movement.
We know that by coming together in our union, we have the power in numbers to raise wages and secure basic needs like affordable, quality healthcare coverage. Together, we have the power to improve our jobs, make life better for ourselves and our families and build stronger communities.
No court case can stop us from fighting for—and winning—good wages and benefits for all working people!
Please do not hesitate to contact the Local 1 Member Resource Center at (877) 233-8880 with any questions you may have about the Janus decision.
SEIU Local 1 President
