SEIU members in San Antonio are employed by the City of San Antonio and Bexar County. The work we do touches the lives of everyone in our community. SEIU members provide quality drinking water, maintain the streets, keep our streets safe, maintain the libraries and parks, and protect our communities’ most vulnerable members.
Along with public employees and other workers across our state, we are achieving what we cannot accomplish alone to become a powerful voice for working families in Texas.
We are part of a national movement for justice. The Service Employees International Union is 2.1 million members united by the belief in the dignity and worth of workers and the services they provide. SEIU is dedicated to improving the lives of workers and their families and creating a more just and humane society.
