SEIU represents the service industry. These are the folks that are often overlooked in our society – the janitors, the security guards, and health care professionals, for example. SEIU stands for the 99%.
During the recent SEIU 25th annual international convention, delegates passed a resolution that the many SEIU locals bargain for trans-inclusive heath care as part of their contracts. The SEIU International offices already offer trans-inclusive health care benefits to employees. Every single person who got up to speak was in favor of the resolution; no one spoke in opposition. It easily passed.
