SEIU Healthcare members are building a political action movement. First we stopped Hudak. Now we’re getting out the vote in cities across Ontario.
Our political action team is focusing on 6 cities where we think we can make a big difference. We organized election street meetings to meet voters and talk about issues and our Political Action Committee is working to get out the vote.
If you are curious about getting involved with the Member Leadership in Action Program, call the member resource centre (MRC) at 1-877-672-7348.
