Happy 4th of July

Hello friend,

Local 1 wishes you and your family a safe and happy Independence Day! 

As you get ready to enjoy time with your family, I want all of us to remember that Local 1 members across the Midwest continue the fight each and every day to ensure our country lives up to the ideals of equity and justice for all. Because no matter our background or where we come from, we all want and deserve the same things: economic stability, security and a brighter future for our families. That includes our immigrant brothers and sisters⁠—who work hard every single day and are part of the fabric of America in every way. 

All people in the U.S., regardless of immigration status, have certain rights under the U.S. Constitution and other laws. Please see iAmerica for “Know Your Rights” materials in multiple languages and other helpful resources for hardworking families.

Once again, I wish you, your family and friends a safe and happy July 4th holiday. 

In solidarity,



Tom Balanoff
SEIU Local 1
