Local 100: New and Growing with Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas
Since it's founding in 1982, Local 100 of the Service Employees has gained
3500 public and private sector members in Louisiana, over 2000 in Texas,
and over 800 members in Arkansas. Our union is democratically run: we
set our own by-laws and dues and we elect officers we want to represent
us. Our union representatives keep an eye on what our local and state-elected
officials are doing and what laws are being changed or introduced.
We have the lowest dues around-only 1.6% of our gross pay, with a cap
of $35 per month. That's a small price for improvements in pay, benefits
and working conditions.
Our members are working people just like you -- building and maintenance
workers, hotel and food service workers, LPNs, RNs, nurses' aides, janitorial
workers, housekeepers, secretarial and professional employees and more.
They are all people who have come together to fight for the improvements
we all deserve.
Let's Stand Up Together in Local 100!
The Service Employees International Union is the 3rd largest union in
the country. Our Mission is to improve the lives of working people and
their families and lead the way to a more just and humane society.
