On Saturday, Feb. 28, SEIU 1021 members from Del Norte, Mendocino, Marin and Sonoma counties gathered in Santa Rosa at our first Regional Mobilization. These union meetings bring leaders from across the region together to address pressing issues and to prepare for the 2015 SEIU 1021 member convention, which takes place September 26-27.
SEIU 1021 members in other regions will have the opportunity to devise strategies to amplify our voice and strengthen our union:
Upcoming Regional Leadership Mobilizations
March 7 – Napa, Solano, Sacramento, Butte, Shasta, and Yuba counties
March 14 – San Joaquin
March 21 – East Bay
March 28 – San Francisco
North Coast member leaders discussed serious threats to our communities: economic inequality, unaffordable housing, and the rapid increase of healthcare cost premiums. We prioritized ways to address these challenges.
Tom Popenuck, North Bay Regional Vice President said, “We’re confronted with a choice: do we cave into the corporate elite’s agenda, or do we fight for our vision of a united and thriving working class? As 1021 members we’re taking a stand, and at this year’s convention we’ll chart a path to win.”
