Labor Day 2017: Building a 21st Century Labor Movement

Join us this Labor Day as we launch our Together We Rise campaign with events throughout the state!

In a time of political division and millionaires and billionaires calling the shots for the rest of us, now more than ever it is important for workers to come together to demonstrate that there is power in numbers. This Labor Day is so much more than a celebration of what unions have represented in history but on how we create the conditions for the workers of tomorrow. The members of SEIU 2015 are committed to a justice agenda that is not just about resisting in this moment, but providing a hopeful direction toward a just and equitable future. We believe that the labor movement that will be relevant for 21st century workers must be one that sits in unfamiliar spaces and helps find solutions for issues of worker justice, immigrant justice, restorative justice, environmental justice, and housing justice. Together we rise!
