On June 2, Governor Ralph Northam attended the first-ever SEIU Virginia 512 Leadership Conference to thank union members for our Medicaid Expansion advocacy and to talk about building a better future for working families in Virginia.
Union members shared their ideas of what working Virginians need with the Governor, including:
- Higher wages for all working people, and a $15 minimum wage
- Free higher education
- Affordable, quality child care
- Expanded voting rights
- Protections for workers’ rights to form a union and bargain collectively
- and more!
Governor Northam and his staff pledged to continue to work with union members to pass policies and budgets, which will improve the lives of working Virginians. For more information, contact your union at 571-432-0209 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
