SEIU 721 represents the county and city employees across Southern California, including Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside counties and numerous cities in the region, as well as employees of special districts and publicly-funded non-profits such as health clinics.
Our members care for the sick, protect the quality of the drinking water, keep records in the courts, administer benefits for poor people, maintain the libraries, help run the jails, protect our communities’ most vulnerable members, maintain the streets, work with parolees, groom and maintain the beaches, and provide many other services to keep counties and cities running.
We are a powerful organization that stands for quality services and wins for our members and the communities where they live and work.
We will unite all of our members into one strong union that adapts to changing surroundings. We will bring a union voice to all public service workers in Southern California. We will ensure future generations are prepared to lead their successors into the future. We will collaborate with the public to win resources for services that make communities stronger. We will create every opportunity for members to lead in their communities and at work, including encouraging and training union members to hold political office. We will hold ourselves and others accountable to our values. Together we will be the model for unions in the 21st Century.
