Be Stronger Together,
Be Part of SEIU Local 99!

Together, we've fought for—and won—increased funding for education that stopped furloughs, layoffs and other budget cuts, a historic increase in the minimum wage to $15 per hour at the nation's second-largest school district that raises the wage floor for everyone, a strong voice to protect our rights and benefits on the job including seniority, paid vacation, sick leave, and much more!

But we still have more to win, including summer relief for school workers, a voice for child care providers, and more wage increases and health care for all.  It's all about strength in numbers: when you become a member of SEIU Local 99, you join with thousands of other education workers speaking with one unified voice on the issues that impact all of us.
