    Foundation of the Union: Janitors and Custodians in SEIU

    Born as the national union for janitors, SEIU has been the leading union for custodians ever since. Though the organization's professional base dramatically developed since the BSEIU era, janitors and custodians will forever be the base upon which SEIU was originally built.

  • (30404) SEIU Local 535 Banner

    Local 535 (SEIU)

    Upon its inception in 1964, SEIU Local 535 initially represented public employees, specifically social workers. As the Local's growth spread across California, its members came to include non-profit employees, particularly nurses as well as former IJWU members. Local 535 dissolved in the mid-2000s and its members were amalgamated into various SEIU locals throughout California. This gallery primarily contains photos of SEIU Local 535 members demonstrating, campaigning, and organizing, as well as members attending events and at work.

By 1968, the union represented service workers in over 100 occupations around the nation. This exhibit chronicles the union’s history of organizing and the people who made it happen.
