#var:page_name# cover

SEIU Local 521 members are inspired by the historical fight for justice of leaders like César E. Chávez, and look to his example in our continued push for UNITY. 52 years after the signing of the first United Farm Workers contract, SEIU Local 521 members continue their resilient efforts through bargaining negotiations on various contracts from Kern to San Mateo County.

SEIU Local 521 members are commemorating the legacy of Chávez by participating in various community service actions and marches throughout the month of March and April, all while making it loud and clear that “Together #WeRise”. The Central Valley roads that paved the way for union organizing decades ago continue to inspire our fight for union jobs today!

Join us to celebrate in San Jose, on Saturday, April 7, 12:30-5 p.m. at our SEIU Local 521 office on 2302 Zanker Rd.

This event is sponsored by our SEIU Local 521 Latino Caucus.
