SEIU 721 Members Deliver at the Polls!

California’s June primary was a victory for working families, as SEIU 721 member power boosted strong, pro-worker candidates at the polls.

In a time when the rich and greedy are doing everything they can to rig the system in their favor by pushing anti-worker policies like “Right to Work” (for less) and privatization of vital public services, it’s more important than ever that we flex our collective to muscle to elect politicians who will fight for working families.

June is just the beginning! We’ve got to keep our foot on the gas through November and ensure that the strong candidates we’ve advanced to the runoff make it into office.

The political power of our union is one of the only voices left for working people. If we don’t show up in November, we’ll be crushed by corporate greed – and possibly silenced forever.
