Meet our members

SEIU 775 members make a difference in the lives of so many people.

“When I started as a caregiver back in 1999, we didn’t have a Union. I was paid less than $7 an hour, had no PTO, no health insurance, and they didn’t even withhold income tax on my paychecks. Having benefits, like health insurance and retirement, are really wonderful. But I think what means the most to me is how we stand up for what is right and fight to be treated as the professionals that we are. It is us, the caregivers, whose voices are making the difference. We are the Union!”

А самое страшное,что ты можешь заразить своих своих близких пожилых и старых родных,а именно они умирают или очень тяжело болеют Covid.Сделай правильный выбор !!! Это твой долг перед собой и твоей семьёй.”

“It truly does pay to read and understand our union contracts. Coworkers and I found a section in our contract about additional overtime pay that we weren’t receiving. This discovery led to a large grievance settlement between our union and ResCare Residential, resulting in a nearly $3,500 payout to me alone—with most of my coworkers also winning hundreds of extra dollars!”
