SEIU Oregon State Council is a coordinating body combining the political programs of SEIU Local 503 and SEIU Local 49. SEIU 503 is an organization of more than 72,000 people who, by joining together, are achieving what we cannot accomplish alone. By standing together, we have a voice in our contracts and our daily work lives. We provide valuable services to our communities, doing more than 500 different jobs in 85 state, local government, and non-profit agencies and care facilities. The services we provide include helping Deaf people get access to education, testing new drivers, collecting revenue, helping veterans, assisting at-risk youth, repairing bridges, maintaining Oregon's parks, and caring for children, seniors, and people with disabilities - just to name a few. SEIU 49 is a union of more than 13,000 members throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington. Our members work in a variety of facilities in Oregon and Southwest Washington in the healthcare, security, custodial and service industries.
