Our Union represents 45,000 caregivers in home care, nursing homes, and residential care who are dedicated to improving the lives of all long-term care workers and those we care for. Caregivers have a stronger voice when we are united and have each other’s backs.
Before we founded our Union in 2002, caregivers made minimum wage and got minimal respect. Since then, we have won better wages, better benefits, and better training.
Membership in SEIU 775 is valuable. Only members are eligible for special Membership Plus discounts and benefits. And only members have the right to participate fully in the internal affairs of the Union, vote for Union officers, run for Union office, be involved in collective bargaining, and vote to reject or ratify the collective bargaining agreement for your bargaining unit. Together, we are stronger — for ourselves, for our families and communities, and for our clients.
