Our Victories

SEIU Healthcare Michigan

Victories in 2020

COVID-19 changed everything for healthcare workers as it exposed deep cracks in our healthcare system. When the pandemic first hit, our country’s lack of preparation put many healthcare workers’ lives at risk. While many of us would have loved to work from home during these frightening times, we didn’t have that choice. Workers had to join together and scrap for every single piece of PPE and every new contract this year. We stayed strong and united during this crisis and we could not be more proud.

Thanks to your unshaken resolve, our union has grown and thrived. In fact, we added over 1,000 new members in 2020. That’s a huge accomplishment, and you all played a major role in achieving it. This will allow us to do even greater things in 2021 as we continue to fight for better working conditions for all healthcare workers in Michigan.

As the pandemic tore through nursing homes in Michigan, healthcare workers stood up to demand that owners “protect us, respect us, and pay us!” In October, workers organized and used their collective voice to put pressure on owners to negotiate contracts with higher wages, stronger benefits, and protections from COVID-19. When owners refused to budge, workers organized to walk off the job in protest. Owners saw the power of our workers, and 20 nursing homes settled new contracts before the strike could begin– one nursing home settled after only two days of a strike. The success of our campaign is a testament to the strength of our workers united together to demand changes in the nursing home industry.
