(October 7th, 2017) — SEIU Healthcare Illinois and Indiana hospital leaders joined workers and activists from home healthcare, nursing homes and child care as part of the Union’s annual “Leadership Assembly” held this year at the Chicago Teacher’s Union office. The annual event celebrates the remarkable work and victories from the year, connects leaders with workers from other industries, and fosters a series of educational workshops and planning sessions looking into the future.
The theme of this year’s Leadership Assembly is “Together We Rise” named after a comprehensive outreach program to reconnect, engage, and mobilize all SEIU members in record numbers to strengthen the Union for the long term.
At the Leadership Assembly hospital workers presented a video montage showcasing the incredible work of leaders through speeches, press clips, interviews, photographs, and highlights from actions and marches.
