SEIU fest to feature fun, opportunities, U.S. rep

April 1, 2019

SEIU unity, good food and fun are at the top of the agenda for the “Spring Fling” set for April 27. Also: Music and dancing.

“It’s a great way for our members from around the state to have a chance to meet each other, socialize and have some fun,” said Brenda Rodrigues, president of Local 888.

A special guest speaker will be new U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley. The former Boston City Council member has hit the ground running, emboldening Democrats around the country.

The event will put a spotlight on SEIU caucuses – which are a way for union members with similar backgrounds and interests to get together, build lasting bonds and address issues affecting their communities. They include the African American (AFRAM), Latino, Lavender, Asian/Pacific and Women’s caucuses. SEIU caucuses can serve as an entry point into union activities and help members become leaders.

The statewide SEIU “Spring Fling” is set for Sat., April 27, 4 to 8 p.m., at the SEIU 1199 Union Hall, 108 Myrtle St., Quincy.

The event is sponsored by the SEIU Massachusetts State Council, SEIU Community Action and Locals 888, 1199, 509 and 32BJ.
