Nursing Home Campaign
Over 5,000 nursing home workers strong
Whether you’re from Ishpeming, Muskegon, or Detroit, we believe that every nursing home worker deserves a living wage and safe working conditions. SEIU Healthcare Michigan is the largest union of nursing home workers in our state with more than 5,000 strong. We are united in our fight for quality jobs and quality care in our homes. We are the nurses, nursing assistants, activities aides, housekeeping and laundry employees, and transport staff who work hard to provide our residents with the care they need and the dignity they deserve.
Together, we win real results
We know that we are stronger together because when we’re united we win real results. Every victory we’ve secured was won through the unity and collective action of the nursing home workers in our union.
As nursing home workers continue to face understaffing, low pay, expensive health insurance, and unsafe working conditions, we fight as a union to win good contracts that respect and protect us and those we care for. We have won contracts with fair compensation, raises, affordable healthcare, and training and education opportunities.
We have come together to demand our elected leaders enact strong legislation such as the $2.35/hour wage pass through and Governor Whitmer’s Nursing Home Workforce Stabilization Board.
