“First off, even before the pandemic our union fights for fair wages, great benefits, and worker rights. During the pandemic they provided even more support in getting masks for workers, allowing extra time off for some workers, and granting those with children help with childcare services.

Being a part of a union allowed me to also pursue nursing, since my union funded and supported my education by paying for my books, and tuition. My union even awarded me a stipend to take time off work and still get paid. With the support of SEIU-UHW I am in my final semester of nursing school, and I am grateful to be part of this wonderful union.”
