As a janitor member of SEIU Local 32BJ, I truly understand why being a part of this union is important. It’s not just about having more members, more strength and good contracts, benefits, salaries and respect. It’s about standing together across the United States.
Thanks to SEIU, I have better conditions in my life, as do other members, while nonunion workers in this country are often treated like slaves with discrimination and abuse.
I'm very proud to be an SEIU member because I witness the constant fight for justice for workers and their families. We are not alone in our struggles and Max Fraser’s piece doesn’t get that.
