9to5: The Story of a Movement

🎶 Working 9 to 5, what a way to make a living
Barely getting by, it's all taking and no giving 😤

When Dolly Parton sang “9 to 5,” she was singing about a real movement: American secretaries were fed up with workplace abuse in the '70's. They took to the streets to demand better treatment and fair pay, leading to nationwide improvements for working women.

Our union is hosting a *free* virtual screening of the new documentary "9to5: The Story of a Movement" for our members. The screening is this Saturday, February 20th, from 2-4 pm EST. RSVP here:

The documentary is about 9to5: The National Association of Working Women, the feminist labor organization that SEIU helped build in the 1970s. This event is being made available to SEIU members, leaders, retirees, staff, and worker leaders/organizing committee members on campaigns on a first come, f...

Why should we trust a vaccine that was developed so quickly

Why should we trust a vaccine that's been developed so quickly? ✅ Because it's gone through the same vigorous testing and safety measures as any other vaccine we take and medicine we use.

Healthcare workers are first in line to receive their COVID-19 vaccine, but many of us may still have questions we would like answered before getting our vaccines. Check out more information on the vaccine and commonly asked questions here: http://www.seiuhcpa.org/2021/01/19/vaccine-resources-for-caregivers/

Pa. healthcare group demands changes to nursing home regulations

“It’s a life or death situation. Our seniors need more staffing. Without it, their quality of life is not there.” - Liz Empson, LPN

This past Monday, Tina Siegel, LPN, Liz Empson, LPN, and Michelle Cooper whose father is a nursing home resident voiced the concerns of thousands of caregivers and residents who are calling on the Department of Health and legislators to update Pennsylvania's nursing home regulations. Enough is enough: Protect seniors, respect caregivers, and toughen these regulations today to save lives.

"The COVID-19 Pandemic has exposed some long-standing weaknesses in our healthcare system—chronic understaffing, failure to hire and fill the many positions that are desperately needed, and a lack of funding... The dilemma we now face stems from years of poor policies and budget cuts brought on by our elected officials." - Dana Greenwood, RN at a state hospital

In this powerful letter to the editor, Dana Greenwood emphasizes that funding for public health needs to be taken seriously—to protect healthcare workers in state facilities and keep statewide communities safe.

A message from Matthew Yarnell

The COVID-19 action plan that moved out of the US Senate Friday ensures that thousands of caregivers taking care of Pennsylvanians through the Commonwealth, public and private nursing homes, and homecare services will be able to stay on the job. That’s great news for caregivers and critical for the people we care for.

Pennsylvania ranks a shocking 44th out of 50 states in the amount spent on public health per capita. "“I want to be clear - nurses aren’t crying for ourselves, we’re crying for our patients. Knowing that people might be suffering and we could do more if only we had more nurses is really hard.

Pennsylvania nurses call for staffing, funding to support patients

PA ranks an embarrassing 45th in public health spending. “We need our legislators to fully fund our state health system. We need any federal aid that comes into our state to go into solving the staffing crisis" -Christina Hauser, RN with PA Dept. of Corrections

State nurses are speaking out to demand a public health system to protect the people of our state.

Cuts in funding and staffing have left PA state nurses with few resources, and they are now demanding solutions to ensure proper care for patients.

Welcome Schuylkill Center workers! Caregivers at Schuylkill Center, a Genesis nursing home in Pottsville, overwhelmingly voted to form their union! They join thousands of caregivers - including hundreds of other Genesis workers - to have a stronger voice in their Five Star resident care and stand up for better jobs and safety in the midst of the COVID crisis.

Crisis within a Crisis: Health Workers on the Front Line of COVID-19 - Non Profit News | Nonprofit Quarterly

"A study in New York State found that nursing homes with unions were associated with a 42 percent relative decrease in COVID-19 infection rate among residents and a 30 percent decrease in mortality. The researchers attributed the better outcomes to the effort by unions to ensure their members got access to PPE...Better pay and benefits will also have made a difference, decreasing the need for workers to have multiple jobs or return to work when ill."

COVID-19 has revealed deep cracks in US healthcare, particularly for workers. But this could be a transformational moment if we invest in a caring future.

A contract for care workers that honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. | Opinion - Minnesota Reformer

"I see every day — both as a worker and a client — what our historical undervaluing of care work means for families. It’s hard not to get frustrated when you hear about rich corporations getting even richer while care workers are stuck making poverty wages. But it’s our job, as King showed, to not just be frustrated, but to raise our voices against injustice, organize and make change."

Home care workers tentative contract, negotiated between the state of Minnesota and SEIU, is in synch with MLK Day and its mandate for justice.

No one knows more about how this virus has affected people’s lives and health than frontline caregivers.

01/18/2021

Today we remember and celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who gave the length, breadth, and height of his life fighting for freedom, justice, and dignity for all. His commitment to civil rights and the poor and disinherited is a tremendous legacy we must continue together today.

In his 1968 speech to Local 1199, he said: "Most of the poor people in our country are working every day. You know where they are working. So often they are working in our hospitals, and all over this country. I thank God for what your union has done, and what you continue to do... And I say if we will stand and work together, we will bring into being that day, when justice will roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream. We will bring into being that day, when America will no longer be two nations, but will be one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

If you call off sick, you DIDN'T leave your coworkers short-staffed. Your boss did. If they refuse to hire enough workers to cover sick workers shifts, they didn't include your human needs in their ... calculations. That is NOT YOUR FAULT! You earned your Sick Time. You deserve it. Use your Sick Time, and don't feel guilty about it.

NEWS FLASH # 2 10/24/20: NOW AS THE DEATH TOLL MOUNTS AND TRUMP DOES NOTHING TO SAVE LIVES WHILE TRYING TO CUT HEALTHCARE DURING A PANDEMIC, WE NEED TO VOTE HIM OUT, BECAUSE HE HAS WEAPONIZED THE CORONA VIRUS TO SAVE HIMSELF AT THE COST OF DESTROYING SO MANY LIVES, OUR ECONOMY, AND OUR DEMOCRACY. NEWS FLASH #1 9/28/20: TRUMP, THE COMMANDER-IN-THIEF, IS TRYING TO STEAL OUR RIGHT TO VOTE BY RAISING A BOGUS "VOTER FRAUD" ISSUE AND TAKING IT TO THE POLITICIZED SUPREME COURT, WHERE HE HOPES HIS "TRUMPET PUPPETS" WILL ANNOINT HIM DICTATOR/POTUS. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- 8/26/20 VOTE TRUMP OUT IN NOVEMBER- HE'S A GRIM REAPER, TRAITOR, DICTATOR, ETC. 1.Trump the GRIM REAPER. Trump is responsible for hundreds of thousands of American deaths from the Covid 19 virus because he should have taken serious steps to get it under control, as other advanced nations have. At first he wanted to get the economy going rather than save lives, because that was his selling point for re-election. Now he is simply letting people die as cannon fodder TO SCARE PEOPLE FROM VOTING. His actions or lack thereof are “QUASI-GENOCIDAL ”, in that causing massive deaths by withdrawal of food supplies or water or emergency medical care or disease prevention is immoral and criminal. An example of this pattern was Stalin’s appropriation of Ukrainian grain in the 1930’s, which caused the death of millions of Ukrainians. 2. Trump the TRAITOR. Trump made a bargain with the devil, being Russia’s Putin, after they enabled the rebuilding of his fortune, such as it is, by way of investing in and financing his business interests. Some of this is on the record but complex, and much more is hidden in banking and tax records not available. In exchange for that and their help in getting him elected in 2016, Russia has had a free ride in their aggressions. If he got tough with Russia they would expose him and pull the rug on his house of cards business empire, which has excessive debt he can never repay 3. Trump uses and ABUSES HIS POWERS for personal and political gain only, treating this country and its 330 million people as a fiefdom.or real estate property. He ignores the Constitution at every turn. 4. Trump the LIAR. Almost every time Trump speaks, he lies, tens of thousands of lies during his Presidency. He has no credibility. For example, if he announces a Covid vaccine shortly before the election, people would be skeptical and not want to chance taking it. 5. Trump the RACIST. Beyond being a white supremacist, Trump uses racism to divide the country, exploiting racial fears and prejudices to carve out support from working class white people who are ironically being stepped on just like minorities. 6. He is a misogynist and disrespects women’s rights and family values including childcare and moral decency. 7. He PROMOTES VIOLENCE and DOMESTIC TERRORISM, including prompting his minions to amplify violence at street protests, caused by his own policies, and then blaming Democrats as a new distraction from the Covid. 8. He has NO EMPATHY, for the dead or dying victims of the Covid, of racial murders, of domestic terrorist murders, or of the millions losing their jobs or homes or going hungry. 9. He chips away at democracy one step at a time and is now pretty much a DICTATOR. But if he wins another time, he will become very much a dictator. He has trampled on and ignored the Constitution. 10 He has assumed legislative authority from Congress, legislating by EXECUTIVE FIAT. 11. He is PACKING THE COURTS, so that the judiciary would only be a rubber stamp of approval for his actions, right or wrong. 12. He pursues VOTER SUPPRESSION in many ways, in order to steal his and other elections. 13. He has openly stated his intention to DESTROY SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE, a shocking plan that would leave people on the streets, ill and hungry. 14. He has appointed acting cabinet members and other officials to CIRCUMVENT the required Senate APPROVAL PROCESS. 15. He has developed a dangerous CULT following via his bellicose salesmanship- not unlike Hitler’s, which could lead to MAJOR CIVIL UNREST whether he wins or loses the election. 16. He STONEWALLS or outright refuses to comply with CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT.. 17. He is essentially a CRIMINAL, with a lifetime trail of FRAUD, business and TAX CHEATING. 18. He is INCOMPETENT, aside from all else, and could not succeed in running the country in any case, as he lacks the concentration, doesn’t read, and has NO WORK ETHIC. 19. He has gone BANKRUPT several times It is no surprise how he has MISMANAGED THE ECONOMY 20. Trump has the personality of a SCHOOLYARD BULLY, and a nasty temper, no negotiating or diplomatic skills. 21. Has been described as like a MOB BOSS, demanding ABSOLUTE LOYALTY and no dissenting opinions from his staff. But he has no loyalty to his staff, whom he fires at will by tweet. 22. Trump will STOP AT NOTHING TO WIN, INCLUDING SABOTAGING THE POSTAL SERVICE to keep people from voting by mail, though this would create havoc in all the other ways mail is vital to Americans, He is likely to refuse to leave office if he loses the election, just like the dictator he already is in a sense. 23. Trump’s 2017 TAX CUT was a TRILLION DOLLAR GIFT TO HIS RICH FRIENDS and himself, with unusual SPECIAL CHANGES TO THE TAX CODE FAVORING HIS REAL ESTATE PROPERTIES 24. Trump opposes even minimal gun control laws, such as background checks and limits to military grade weapons. 25. Trump endangers the environment, creating negative climate changes and health issues. 26. Trump has diminished our place as a world leader in democratic ideals and as a bulwark against Russian and other threats to world peace, and made America under Trump a laughing stock. 27. Trump has not “drained the swamp” as he pretended he would, but has brought corruption to the worst level in our history. 28. Trump has made a joke out of his “Build A Wall” program, proving it impossible to build and easy for people to get over or around. He and his wealthy corporate donors have actually tacitly supported and used illegal immigrants to keep wages down on American workers. 29. Trump has fought in court and otherwise to eliminate Obamacare and pre-existing conditions, the safety net for millions of Americans, and failed to combat high prescription drug prices. 30. Our economy is in the worst state since the Great Depression of almost 100 years ago. It is not an asterisk incidental to a temporary glitch from a virus, but rather a direct result of his deliberate decision to ignore the disease he perceived as a threat to his re-election - which had the effect of both worsening the economy and the pandemic. We now suffer the compound damage of a worsening economy and pandemic, not to mention intense civil unrest. . In short, Trump played the country as a personal project under his control, holding our welfare hostage to his re-election campaign, which has been his main focus since taking office. Imagine what would happen to our Democracy and our chance to return to normalcy if he wins the election in November. This is why it is so vital that we all vote. If, as it has been said, only 60% of the electorate voted in 2016, and most of the nonvoting 40% were arguably would-be Democrat voters - let’s say 3 out of 4, then 60% of all potential voters were Democrats and Hillary would have won by a 60-40 landslide. That works out, on a sample of 100, to about 30 of the first 60, plus 30 the missing 40, for a total of 60 of 100. Think of it, people, with all the voter suppression, cheating and Russian interference, Democrats would still have won handily with a greater turnout. SO, WHAT TO DO?. VOTE LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT, WHICH FOR SOME PEOPLE IT DOES, AND FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES AND THAT OF OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN, AND FOR THE FUTURE OF THIS COUNTRY. IT HAS TO BE TAKEN VERY SERIOUSLY. SO VOTE EARLY, ORGANIZE AND HELP YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS AND VOTE. YOU SNOOZE YOU LOSE. OK TO SHARE
