John Sevigny, a team leader at the Preble Street Teen Center, wears our #ProtectAllWorkers mask. He’s looking forward to becoming a union steward.

Preble Street: Preble Street workers paused their negotiations with management in March in order to focus on the response to COVID, setting up additional emergency services for Maine’s houseless community and advocating for staff safety during this high-risk time. The Preble Street workers are now getting back to the bargaining table with some key issues to be addressed about the rights of part-time workers, pay and addressing rights and equality for workers of color.

City of Lewiston: MSEA-SEIU members on our Union Negotiating Team at the City of Lewiston have begun negotiations with management on a new contract to replace the one expiring June 30, 2020. The Union Negotiating Team: Nicholaus Richard (standing in upper-right photo on this page), Allison Pease, Benjamin Westman and Rose Dufour.

Lewiston Schools: MSEA-SEIU members on our Union Negotiating Team for the Lewiston Schools are preparing for upcoming contract negotiations to replace the contract expiring June 30, 2020. The Union Negotiating Team: Jennifer Ross, Rachael Crowley and Ross Gilchrist.
