Tomorrow is Independence Day, and many SEA/SEIU Local 1984 members will be serving their state by reporting to work. They’re the ones who are there to make sure everything keeps working, even when most people have the day off from work.
Patriotism comes in many forms. For those who have the day off, I hope you enjoy your time and celebrate with friends and family, but I’d encourage you to think of your fellow union members all across the state who’ll be at work today, serving their communities and their state. It’s the work that our members selflessly do that keeps our state running, and I think that’s pretty patriotic.
Please have a safe and fun holiday; know that I deeply appreciate the work that you do.
President, SEA/SEIU Local 1984
