Company Profile
Local 1000 of the Service Employees International Union is a united front of 95,000 working people employed by the State of California, making us the largest public sector union in California and one of the largest in the country. Of course, we do what all labor unions have done traditionally: We organize and represent workers. Local 1000 represents members who contribute almost $6 billion dollars to the California economy and who work in more than 1400 worksites in California, Texas, New York, Chicago and Hawaii. We also fight to ensure that state workers…and all workers…are treated fairly and respectfully in the workplace, and are protected from unsafe work conditions. But what Local 1000 does goes far beyond those traditional labor roles. We believe unions have a duty to do more for their members than just represent them in contract negotiations and enforcement. Our union is committed to being relevant in our members’ lives beyond the workplace. We stand with them to build communities in which they can raise healthy and happy families. We host “Cash for College” workshops where members and their families can get help with financial aid. We partner in “Healthier U,” a workplace wellness pilot program designed by state employees for state employees. And we engage and mentor our members as they grow into the leaders their families, our union and our state need them to be. We are strong advocates for our members’ retirement security, but we also want a California where everyone can retire with peace of mind. We will continue to fiercely defend Social Security and earned pension benefits from those who would raid the funds workers have paid into. We are joining with low-wage workers in their fight to increase the minimum wage to $15 and to organize unions at their workplaces. Workers from diverse fields such as retail, fast food, airports and home health care are standing up together, and we are standing right there with them.
