Join Michigan’s largest healthcare union
The time to act is now.
healthcare workers represented in Michigan
nursing home workers
healthcare facilities organized
Healthcare workers are challenged with a staffing crisis in every facility
Low wages and poor working conditions make it difficult to recruit and retain healthcare staff.
Our union can change that.
It’s time to unite together so that every worker is respected, protected, paid fair wages, and has the chance to join a union no matter where they work. We are challenging companies that take from us without giving back. We are demanding that every family is healthy and safe with the opportunity to thrive, regardless of race, immigration status, gender, job, or location.
Together we have won:
We believe deeply in the profound transformation that comes with organizing, with joining together, and with building and holding power together — and for each other — in our unions.
Take the first step.

Stories from the frontline
As a hospital worker and a SEIU member political organizer, I helped to elect leaders who support pro-worker legislation like a $15 minimum wage and the PRO act. I am proud to make a difference that will benefit all workers through my union.
Carmelita Ford, PCA at DMC
Being a leader for SEIU allowed me to be a champion for racial justice. I marched for black lives and I stood for a new contract at my nursing home. My union supports my struggle and empowers me to take action to make change in my community and my workplace.
Mary McClendon, CNA at Ambassador
Having a union is a blessing, because together we all have each others backs.
Tenesha Smiley, Patient Care Assistant at DMC
The pandemic exposed the cracks in our system. As nursing home workers we experienced the grief and hardship first hand. We lost two of our coworkers to COVID-19, but we were never deterred by the fight ahead. Through SEIU, we won a contract with higher wages and better benefits.
Charles Sloan, CNA
Being a union member means having the unity and strength to advocate effectively for fair wages, protected benefits, and the care our patients deserve.
Tracie Alexander, Respiratory Therapist at DMC
United in SEIU, we’ve been able to advocate powerfully for patient care, PPE, pay raises and fair schedules.
Christina Hall, Surgical Tech at Mercy
I went on strike because we needed a new contract that paid workers living wages and offered affordable health insurance. Through the strength of our union, we were able to win.
Jernee Bates, CNA at Four Seasons Nursing Home
SEIU is the largest healthcare union in Michigan and America, and has the clout to hold national corporations accountable to hospital employees, our families and our patients.
