SEIU represents all care giving staff in this retirement community in Strawberry Point, Iowa, which is 60 miles northeast of Cedar Rapids. The nurses, CNAs, dietary workers, housekeeping staff and maintenance workers all organized with SEIU in 1997 so they could speak with a unified voice and improve the quality of care for their residents.
UNION REPRESENTATIVE: We are working in partnership with UFCW Local 431 to strengthen union representation for our nursing home members.
