This week, members at the Department of Environmental Services took part in daylong activities to talk to their co-workers about SEA/SEIU Local 1984 and our new contract. The one-on-one conversations resulted in six new members!
The activities, all held on Tuesday, included a noontime question-and-answer session run by members, and members also signed up for shifts throughout the day to sit in the lobby with SEA Organizer Jean Chellis to answer questions on the new contract.
We point this effort out because it’s a great member-led example of the huge impact you can make with a small amount of effort. Since the Janus Supreme Court ruling, we’ve seen an increased interest in non-members joining the union, and this wouldn’t happen without those important one-on-one conversations.
Our strength is in numbers, and our union is better with more voices involved. If you’d like to plan an activity like this at your worksite, we encourage you to talk with your SEA organizer today.
