SEIU is the fastest-growing and most effective healthcare union in the country. Every year, thousands of healthcare workers join SEIU in order to have a voice for better wages, affordable healthcare, retirement security and quality patient care.
Here are some of our most recent SEIU Local 49 election healthcare victories:
- In February of this year, over 600 caregivers at St. Charles Medical Center in Bend voted to join Local 49 and are now on their way to negotiating job improvements.
- In 2010, staff schedulers at Kaiser voted to join Local 49. Now have guaranteed pay raises, improvements to benefits and a stronger voice on the job.
