One Year Anniversary
SEIU Local 2015 celebrated its first year with victories for California’s caregivers and working families and commits to continue to fight for livable wages, fair contracts, and better working conditions for its members and better quality of life for care recipients.
2016 Leadership Conference
Nearly 2,000 long term care providers gathered today at the Los Angeles convention Center to discuss the future of long term care and engage in key conversations around the key issues that disproportionately impact low income and communities of color. Caregivers had the opportunity to converse, organize, and discuss how these various issues directly impact their communities.
In June, SEIU Local 2015 was created to unite the voices of the over 315,000 long term care workers previously represented by three legacy SEIU locals in California. The Officers of SEIU Local 2015 felt that it was important to work with members to define the goals and vision of the new Local. So they met with our member leaders in their own communities – having conversations about the hopes and dreams they have for our Local, the values our Local should represent, and the specific issues that impact them, their families, and those to whom they provide care.
