We’re proud to stand with Scranton Federation of Teachers Local 1147 sisters and brothers currently on strike in Scranton!

These 800 teachers and paraprofessionals have been without a contract for more than four years amidst drastic and ongoing budget cuts. PA kids deserve to have fully-funded classrooms, and we’re incredibly proud to support SFT 1147 members as they strike for their students and their community.

This Labor Day, we want to thank our members who continue to provide human services to vulnerable populations across the Commonwealth. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our members have shown they are truly essential workers.

Even as essential workers, many SEIU 668 members suffered layoffs, illnesses, and unfortunately, some lost their lives. Now more than ever, a strong labor movement is essential to protect worker rights, and we must never stop fighting for working families.

This weekend, enjoy the time with your family and friends and stay safe!

Earlier today, our Local was saddened to learn of the unexpected passing of national AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka. A true labor leader hailing from right here in the Commonwealth, Trumka had been national president of the AFL-CIO since 2009.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends, as well as all those he touched inside and outside the Labor Movement. #1u

The cause of labor and fighting for workers is one of the most just causes in the world. Today, we mourn the loss of a man who dedicated his life to that cause with all other unionists. Rest in power, Richard Trumka. #1u

🚨 Action Alert 🚨

Protect the most vulnerable Pennsylvanians and save union jobs now!

Gov. Wolf and the Department of Human Services is awarding an out-of-state servicer to outsource work currently performed by the Area Agencies on Aging, specifically the Assessment work needed to begin services for the elderly and disabled residents of PA.

Maximus is a known villain in other states, plus they're still doing a poor job right here in Pennsylvania when it comes to Medicaid enrollment.

We must stop the Governor and DHS from outsourcing this vital resource to an out-of-state, non-union, subpar contractor!

Call the Governor’s office and demand that the Area Agencies on Aging continue to be serviced by good union workers right here in Pennsylvania!

Call Governor Wolf now: 717-787-2500

Tell the person you talk to (or leave in message) that you strongly urge the Governor not to approve another DHS contract with Maximus.

We’re thrilled to share that SEIU 668 members at PHMC have reached a tentative agreement!

This bargaining team faced an uphill battle after they unionized back in 2019, so concluding negotiations on their first-ever union contract is a huge win.

Stringing healthcare workers along during contract negotiations, especially during a global health crisis, is wrong.

Shame on Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) for trying to stall contract negotiations for healthcare providers here in Philly.

SEIU 668 members are standing strong with our PHMC brothers and sisters. Join us!

Sign and share the petition below telling PHMC management to bring a fair wage proposal to the table now!

05/11/2021

In 2019, healthcare workers with Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) of Philadelphia County joined SEIU Local 668 after they won their union election.

These workers have been negotiating their first-ever union contract with PHMC management for nearly a year and a half, but still don’t have a final contract.

PHMC healthcare workers provide a huge range of high-quality, low-cost healthcare services at a number of clinics throughout Philly. These are nurse practitioners, behavioral health workers, social workers, physician assistants, and nurses. They have served residents of Philadelphia tirelessly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and they continually work non-stop to ensure that everyone in Philly has access to healthcare.

Stringing healthcare workers along, especially during a global health crisis, is unacceptable.

We’re asking everyone here in Pennsylvania to please join us in standing with our PHMC brothers and sisters. Sign and share the petition below telling PHMC management to bring a fair wage proposal to the table now.

When the Occupational Safety and Health Act went into effect on this day in 1971, it left all public sector workers out in the cold. Since then, unions and the labor movement have fought tirelessly to bring much-needed OSHA protections to the public sector.

If 2020 and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that every worker deserves to have a safe, healthy working environment no matter what.

In memory of the SEIU Local 668 members we lost in the last year, we will continue to fight for these much-needed protections.

This Workers’ Memorial Day, we continue to call upon every Pennsylvania legislator to support and pass the Jake Schwab Worker’s Protection Bill, which will provide OSHA protections and regulations to public sector workers.

Starting today, April 13th, all adult residents of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will be able to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

We’re excited to see Gov. Wolf and Department of Health Secretary Alison Beam speed-up the vaccine roll-out here in PA, especially since it means essential and frontline workers are receiving these much-needed vaccines sooner than expected.
