SEIU Local 6 Seattle WA
We are janitors, security officers, and other working families joined together in SEIU Local 6 for a VOICE for living wages, good benefits, and quality health care. SEIU Local 6 is part of the largest union in the country, Service Employees International Union, which represents over 2 million service workers. SEIU is proud to have the most diverse membership and leadership in the Labor Movement. About 40% of our members are immigrants, and close to 50% are women.
Our Mission is to improve our lives and those of our families, to affirm the humanity and worth of workers and the service they provide, and to create a more just and humane society.
As an organization, we motivate train, and support members to become the voice and the leaders of the union;developing a unified and informed membership that will actively participate in the life of the union; organizing to extend our benefits of union membership to unorganized service workers and to secure control of our industries and our labor markets to protect the hard-fought gains and security of our members; bargaining contracts that improve wages and working conditions, expand the role of workers in workplace decision-making, and build a stronger union; creating political power to ensure that workers' voices are heard at every level of government; to ensure that government plays an active role in creating economic opportunity and in fostering social justice; and building coalitions and acting in solidarity with other organizations who share our concern for social and economic justice.
