Executive Board

We Believe Leadership Matters

We are the Executive Board of SEIU-UHW — the highest leadership body of our union. Our primary role is to inspire and motivate our fellow SEIU-UHW members into action. We are healthcare workers from all aspects of healthcare including hospitals, clinics, in-home supportive services, and nursing homes who devote our time and talent to building teams of SEIU-UHW members within our facilities and counties to lead on ensuring better health and good jobs in California. By communicating with and challenging members, we set the vision and program of our union, and encourage our members to exercise their fullest potential.
