Yes? Great, we'd love for you to check out SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West (SEIU-UHW).
SEIU-UHW is a powerful, cutting-edge union of healthcare workers leading for better health, quality care, and good jobs. With more than 90,000 members working in nearly every part of the healthcare industry, we are the pre-eminent front-line voice on healthcare in California. SEIU-UHW members have a bold strategy to improve healthcare workers' standard of living and make California the healthiest state in the nation, but we can only make it happen with you. We are seeking great organizers to build, support and develop teams of SEIU-UHW member leaders who:
•Fight to improve California's drastically underfunded Medi-Cal system and create an affordable, accessible and high-quality healthcare system for all;
•Educate their co-workers about the issues facing working people and our healthcare system and recruit them to take action;
•Educate policymakers about health and healthcare issues, mobilize voters, and raise money for political action to transform healthcare and strengthen healthcare jobs;
•Mobilize their co-workers behind contracts that provide a rising standard of living for healthcare workers while embracing change, quality and the shared mission of healthcare employers;
•Provide high quality, on-the-job representation to their co-workers based in the power and expertise of healthcare workers representing other healthcare workers;
•Work to create a healthy workforce through collective incentives to take health screenings and reduce the causes of chronic conditions;
•Reach out to non-unionized healthcare workers to bring them into our movement.
