Workplace Protection

Why, Wages, and Benefits

Unions are workers joining together to decide conditions affecting them in their workplace. Labor unions work to bring economic justice to places of employment and social justice to our nation. By joining a union, you will have a stronger voice on the job and in your community — you can help create a better future for yourself and others.

The SEA/SEIU Local 1984 is a center of unity for workers demanding that our economy works for everyone.

As a labor organization, we are taking bold actions to unite the nine out of 10 non-union workers in NH and across America. We work with our partners in labor, progressive and religious communities to launch innovative campaigns that bring new hope to workers in today’s global economy.
