On September 27, SEIU AZ completed our successful first election as Local 48, achieving another milestone in our quest to build a union that is entirely of, by and for our members.
Together, we elected excellent leaders who are devoted to creating a better future for all working families in Arizona and strengthening our relationships with the communities we serve. We congratulate our new officers!
Congratulations to our new officers!
