“These candidates are aligned with SEIU members’ mission of rewriting the rules so that all Pennsylvanians have the right to join and form a union,” said Gabe Morgan, President of the SEIU Pennsylvania State Council and Vice President of SEIU Local 32BJ. “They will be fighting alongside our members for a majority in both state and federal government that is truly committed to fighting for Unions for All.”

Throughout this tumultuous year, SEIU members have been on the front-lines of the COVID-19 crisis, caring for the sick and elderly in homes and in hospitals, keeping schools and office buildings clean and safe, helping to keep the airports functioning and doing much more to keep Pennsylvania families safe. They have also been in the streets rallying for black lives and fighting for racial justice.

“These candidates are the future of our country and our state,” said Matt Yarnell, Secretary-Treasurer of the SEIU Pennsylvania State Council and the President of SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania. “SEIU members have long endured systems of government that have failed working Pennsylvanians. That’s why our union is ready to partner with these champions who know that no matter whether workers are black, white or brown — we should all be able to join and form a union.”
