“Glad to be a part of our SEIU family. When we stick together, and with the full support of our Local, we get the awards and recognition that we deserve!”

Julie Watkins, Ascension Allegan Hospital

With some organizing and a little bit of grit, Ascension workers were able to secure an extra $500 in their pockets. Previously excluded from the award, Union members signed a petition demanding to be treated equally and won a decisive victory.

Last week, all full-time SEIU members who were eligible for the award received a $500 payment while part-time employees received $250. Their victory is a testament to the power of what workers can achieve when they use their voice to unite together for higher wages and better conditions on the job.
