SEIU 503 is a democratic, member-run union of 72,000 people who work as care providers or in public service jobs around the state. In 2020, we will elect more than 700 leaders to a variety of positions, such as the Board of Directors, sublocal officers, and statewide officers. The people in these roles will shape the work of our Union over the next two years as we bargain strong contracts, represent workers, and grow.
Running for office and voting in union elections is the best way that you can shape the course of our Union. Your voice matters. Add it to the conversation.
Sublocals are smaller groups, within the statewide SEIU 503 umbrella, that represent specific bargaining units. There is a homecare workers sublocal, a higher education sub local, non-profit sublocals, numerous state and local government sub locals, and more.
Members of all SEIU 503 sublocals will elect voting delegates to General Council in the coming weeks during their sublocal elections. Even SEIU 503’s smallest sublocal has at least one delegate. Delegates for larger locals are apportioned under an established formula. Members of the Board of Directors—Statewide Officers, Directors, and Assistant Directors—serve as delegates to General Council by virtue of their position.
The 2020 General Council, SEIU Local 503’s supreme governing body, will convene at the Lane Events Center in Eugene August 6-8, 2020. Council Training for appointed Committee Chairs and members will be scheduled prior to General Council convening.
See the election chart below for information about the Homecare sublocal elections. New and updated election and General Council information will be posted as it becomes available.
