On January 31 and February 1, 2020, a thousand SEIU Local 2015 member leaders came together for our first SEIU Local 2015 Convention. Held in Los Angeles, the two-day event celebrated our victories over the last four years and set in place our program to win for our members in the year and years to come.

At the Convention our members unanimously passed resolutions and amendments to our Constitution and Bylaws to strengthen our organization and set a standard for others to follow. 

These include…

Resolution to be an Anti-Racist Organization: This resolution speaks to the commitment of Local 2015 to be an anti-racist organization and our dedication to dismantle the structural racism our country was not only built on but continues to utilize today to suppress people of color.

Omnibus Resolution: As we look to the future and plan the work before us, this resolution outlines our Justice For All and our focus on winning Unions For All, Democracy For All and Long Term Care For All.

Our Plan to Win: Justice for All

In order to continue our work to achieve the Justice Agenda our members voted on in 2016, we will focus our work on winning Unions For All, Democracy For All, and Long Term Care For All.  These three “For Alls” are also known as our fight for Justice For All.

Unions For All

  • Guarantees that every worker has the right to the highest form of democracy – joining together to build power and create balance within our democracy.
  • Where all workers regardless of industry or type of work have the ability to join a union and promote standards for all workers.

Democracy For All

  • Ensures and maximizes participation beyond voting for everyone at every level of government.
  • Dismantles the policies, systems, and structures that prevent participation, and eliminates structural racism that denies us of our rights.

Long Term Care For All

  • Building a long-term care system that meets the needs of everyone who needs care, and breaks down barriers to care because of income and structural racism.
  • Creating a long-term care system that works for workers by delivering dignified wages and benefits, retirement security, training, and an anti-harassment environment.

By focusing on these three key areas, we not only have a program to win, but will lead the way to a brighter future for our members, for all workers, and for long term care.
