You and your fellow union members ultimately decided against changes to your union’s Constitution & Bylaws that would have made a bold, new Vision for Local 500 possible.
I respect the decision of the members of this union, because that is what union democracy is all about.
The conversation about the future of our union is an ongoing one and each and every one of you has a critical part to play.
While our union may not be able to accomplish all the goals laid out in the Vision, that does not mean that we will not continue to fight for issues like closing the achievement gap in public schools, making quality childcare and higher education affordable and passing a collective bargaining bill for Maryland community colleges.
Thank you for all that you do.
President, SEIU Local 500
