This week, SEIU Local 1991 hosted a breakfast at Versailles for most of the labor unions in Miami-Dade County to hear about the importance of the Jackson bond to the future of our public hospital.
In attendance were members of the building and construction trades, transit, sanitation and clerical workers, police, fire, teachers and more.
Also supporting us were our colleagues at Jackson, from AFSCME Local 1363 to the interns and residents in CIR, as well as other SEIU locals.
President Martha Baker, RN, introduced CEO Carlos Migoya to the group, which represents thousands of labor voters in Miami-Dade County. Migoya was clearly impressed with the strength and solidarity of our brothers and sisters and got the message that Jackson can only truly move forward in partnership with its workforce..
Also this week, members spent their dinner hour at SEIU 1991 offices, reaching out to voters directly as only the frontline healthcare professionals of Jackson can.
They educated voters about the bond and urged them to vote Nov. 5. Touch #100!
