Our hard work paid off!

Election Day for the members of the City Council for Wards 2, 4, and 6 has arrived! 

It is vital that we turn out to vote for candidates who stand with workers and our families. The community we call home matters too much to sit out this critical vote!

We are proud to support leaders who do the same.

That's why we are joining together to cast our ballots for Andy Melendez in Ward 2, Paul Davis in Ward 4, and Jim Perry in Ward 6, without delay!

Frontline Workers Tell Governor & State Legislators to Stand With the Public Sector

On Monday, May 15, SEIU 721 members boarded a red eye bus to Sacramento, where we joined hundreds of our Sisters and Brothers from SEIU California to advocate for quality health, quality jobs, and quality services for all.

SEIU COPE Reminds Sacramento - SEIU Members Do the Work That Keeps California Moving


SEIU 721 members are justifiably proud of their work. Every day, SEIU 721 members care for the sick, feed the poor, house the homeless, protect our children, and keep our streets clean and safe. We literally keep society moving.

Don't wait until it is too late! Call 1-866-426-2631 to demand Congress vote "NO on the AHCA right away!

Millions will lose their health coverage and hundreds of thousands will lose their jobs if it passes. Those with pre-existing conditions, including those who donate an organ or bone marrow to save someone else's life, will pay more. Seniors will pay more. And those of us with employer provided coverage will pay more out of pocket. Even kids and Americans with disabilities will pay the price! None of us has any guarantees that we will get our health coverage back if we ever lose it, for any reason.

May Day is more than a day to fight back, it's the day we begin to fight forward! #resistLA

Join us Monday, May 1, at 11 AM in MacArthur Park, as we march through Pershing Square to City Hall! May Day is more than a day to fight back, it's the day we begin to fight forward! #resistLA

We won a tremendous victory by championing quality, affordable healthcare for all Americans!

When tens of millions were threatened with the loss of their healthcare coverage, hundreds of thousands were threatened with the loss of their jobs, and tens of thousands were threatened with the loss of their lives, we fought back!

When we fight we win!

Processions & Vigils to Protect Healthcare in Lancaster & Fullerton

In a peaceful demonstration, concerned patients, providers and community members walked from 38th St W and Paddock Way, to Knight's Lancaster home, and from Hiltscher Park to Royce's Fullerton home, on Thursday evening, to deliver a clear message to the Congressmen about the harm they have wrought.

Emergency Processions & Vigils in Fullerton & Lancaster on February 23

Ed Royce and Steve Knight refuse to meet with us, so we have to take our stories to their doorsteps.  

Congressmen Royce and Knight voted to defund and repeal our country's healthcare system without a plan to replace it. This means all of us are going to pay more for fewer benefits and less coverage.

Because Congressmen Royce and Knight voted to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, 5 million in California will lose health coverage, and 334,000 in the Golden State will lose jobs.

With no coverage but the emergency room, every year, 43,956 Americans will die.

Anti-worker. Anti-union. Pro-corporation. Pro-1%. Gorsuch is wrong for the Supreme Court, and wrong for America!

Donald Trump attacked us when he nominated Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. 

In the words of SEIU International President, Mary Kay Henry, "this is a step backwards for every American who wants a good job, the opportunity for a better life for their family, and a real voice in our economy and democracy."

If Gorsuch is confirmed, the Supreme Court will rule against the communities we serve by gutting the public sector, silencing worker voice, and doing away with collective bargaining.

Hundreds of SEIU 721 members & partners #Fight4Health in Los Angeles!

For Immediate Release 



Unai Montes, 213 610 9445





Los Angeles - Hundreds of Los Angeles-area health care workers, nurses, advocates, patients, and seniors were joined Tuesday by Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León and Senate Health Committee Chairman Ed Hernandez to launch a massive effort to protect Californians' access to affordable health care.  Their action came as the Trump Administration and Republican-led Congress are launching an all-out assault on health security for millions of Americans, with plans to gut the Medicare guarantee for seniors and decimate the Affordable Care Act and Medi-Cal.  Health advocates promised to fight attacks on health care that that would force millions of Californians back into the ranks of the uninsured.
