James Ellison, Executive Board, Kaiser District 5: Kaiser Seat 5E – Walnut Creek, San Ramon – Independent

My name is James Ellison, and I am reinstating my candidacy for Executive Board of SEIU-UHW. By;

  • Ensuring an independent voice for the member’s, that their voices be heard and addressed.
  • Gaining member’s confidence and trust.
  • Interacting with people of all socioeconomic backgrounds.
  • Build relationships with union members, co-workers and others.
  • Gain immediate feedback on issues.
  • Directly ask people to be involved in some specific way; by coming to a meeting, serving on a committee, signing a petition, or handing out leaflets, etc.

In addition; I know the importance of having representation that will fight for member’s rights.  I’ve served as a Steward for 15 years, Executive Board for 5 years, and was a member of the Bargaining Team. I helped negotiate strong wage increases, retirement, healthcare benefits with no changes, and job security which prevented sub-contracting and outsourcing. By doing so, it will give us a better outlook on a better future.  Together we will make sure that each member will receive a fair share.  We the employees are the Union; you matter, I matter, we all matter.

I am James Ellison, and I do appreciate your continuous support and your vote.
