What type of work do SEIU members do?


SEIU Healthcare, the healthcare arm of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), is the largest healthcare union in North America with more than 1.1 million members.

We are doctors and nurses, home care and nursing home workers; we are lab techs, environmental service workers and dietary aides. We are front-line healthcare workers who care for more than 60 million patients across 29 states and two countries. We are caregivers in hospitals, health centers, nursing homes, in-home care and in our communities.

Launched in 2007 with a vision of uniting healthcare workers throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico and delivering the highest quality care to all, we are living this vision today.

Property Services

Property Services workers are janitors, security officers, maintenance and custodial workers, stadium and arena workers, window cleaners, and other workers who provide important services.

Approximately 386,000 SEIU property services workers nationwide clean, maintain, and provide security for commercial office buildings, co-ops, and apartment buildings, as well as public facilities like theaters, stadiums, and airports.

For over two decades, SEIU's Justice for Janitors movement has helped low-wage workers achieve social and economic justice and earn broad-based support from the public as well as religious, political and community leaders. More than 225,000 janitors in more than 30 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada have united in SEIU, America's largest union of property services workers.

Stand for Security is a national, community-based campaign to build stronger communities by helping hundreds of thousands of African-American security officers win a better future.

Public Services

We are the second largest union of public service employees with more than 1 million local and state government workers, public school employees, bus drivers, and child care providers - including 80,000 early learning and child care professionals.
