Tuesday, February 14th is National Call-In Day! Please join us in demanding that Congress put people before politics.
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.
