Sacramento, CA – Service Employees International Union (SEIU) California’s 700,000 members today praised the pro-working-families record of 2024 U.S. Senate candidates and current congress members Barbara Lee (D-Oakland), Katie Porter (D-Irvine) and Adam Schiff (D-Burbank).

“SEIU members have met with the candidates and are thrilled by the outstanding choices voters have in Reps. Barbara Lee, Katie Porter and Adam Schiff,” said David Huerta, SEIU California President and President of SEIU United Service Workers West (USWW). “California’s next U.S. Senator must be a tenacious fighter for working families’ opportunity agenda, a fierce advocate for comprehensive immigration reform, and a leader who will put equity and justice at the center of every decision. As members of Congress and close allies of workers, Rep. Lee, Porter and Schiff all exemplify the qualities SEIU members are looking for in our next U.S. Senator. SEIU members look forward to continuing to develop relationships with the candidates to ensure that working people build power and win justice for all.” 

SEIU local unions in California are made up of workers in frontline, essential roles across the state: nurses, healthcare workers, janitors, social workers, security officers, in-home caregivers, school and university employees, court workers, airport workers, and city, county and state employees.
