DETROIT— “Make some noise SEIU! Make ‘em hear us from Canada to Lansing,” shouted home healthcare worker and Service Employees organizer Rodney Tate to hundreds of trade unionists outfitted in purple and gold. “When we fight, we win!” The crowd of workers enthusiastically shouted back that “We will win!”

On the eve of Juneteenth, SEIU Healthcare Michigan hosted a rally on Detroit’s Belle Isle to re-energize their on-going home healthcare worker campaign and to mark the holiday of Juneteenth. Multiple SEIU locals were in attendance, including SEIU Local 1 (Midwest), Local 775 (Washington), Local 2015 (California), and Fight For A Union.
