SEIU Members Stepping up Their Efforts for Obama-Biden Ticket
Date:10/15/2008

With More Than 3,000 Members and Staff in the Field Full-Time, SEIU Helping To Bring the Change Working Families Need

WASHINGTON, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With just three weeks to go until Election Day, SEIU members across the country are stepping up their efforts to elect Barack Obama and Joe Biden so they can bring about the change working families need. Working with Change to Win partners, SEIU will hold a series of events in battleground states each week to highlight the difference between the candidates on health care reform, good jobs and wages that can support a family.

"Nurses, homecare workers, security workers, janitors, public employees and SEIU members are pounding the pavement to make sure the voices of working men and women are heard in this election," said SEIU Secretary-Treasurer Anna Burger. "Over these final three weeks, SEIU will make it clear to every voter we talk to that the choice is clear - change or more of the same. A vote for Obama is a vote for health care for all, ending the war in Iraq, rebuilding the Middle Class and creating a new American Dream for everyone."

Events will be held in battleground states across the country, including Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

More than 3,000 SEIU members, local and International staff are already working full time in swing states -- with tens of thousands volunteering on weekends and evenings -- to elect Barack Obama. With just under three weeks to go, SEIU has already:

-- knocked on 1,211,075 doors.

-- made 6,874,991 phone calls.

-- registered 80,439 new voters.

-- sent more than 5.7 million pieces of mail about the presidential

election to targeted households.

With 2 million members, SEIU is the fastest-growing union in North America. Focused on uniting workers in three sectors to improve their lives and the services they provide, SEIU is the largest health care union, including hospitals, nursing homes, and home care; the largest property services union, including building cleaning and security; and the second largest public employee union.
