UnionMaine

Trust me, I work for the Government

2,000,000 Members

The SEIU has reached a historic level of two million members. In Maine many MSEA members have asked why we organize outside of our origianal group, state employees. The victories in the old south where North Carolina state government is now SEIU. The raises gained in so many other locations. The reason behind these wins is because the public is beginning to wake up to find out that tearing Unions down will only guarantee low wages for all.
The SEIU is becoming a real force in politics and we can expect to start seeing results after November with passage of the Employee Free Choice Act if we don’t get complacent and sit home and let the third Bush term happen. The country must become US. The votes will be with us if the public starts to share the benefits and respect of being a part of something that cares about them, not just the botttom line.

Don’t forget to check your mail. A bargaining committee meeting will be held on June 21. You don’t have to shout, march, and wear purple underwear. Just agree to talk to your friends at work and just maybe volunteer to be the person that your team members can get back to.
The next contract needs all the good ideas we can find.
