Members of MSEA-SEIU Local 1989 stand for quality public services

The Maine State Employees Association, Local 1989 of the Service Employees International Union, is a member-run union representing over 13,000 Maine workers.

Maine’s public servants
Together, we work in all three branches of state government, the Maine Community College System, Maine Maritime Academy, Maine Turnpike Authority, Maine Military Authority, the City of Lewiston, the Lewiston Public Schools, the City of Auburn, York County government and the Maine Educational Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. We work at nonprofit agencies such as Child Development Services, Home Care for Maine, Alpha One, the Bangor office of the American Red Cross, and the Maine People’s Alliance. In addition, we work for specialized health care facilities such as the Green Valley Association in Island Falls and Treats Falls House in Orono.

A voice in our wages, benefits and working conditions
We make our voice heard in our wages, benefits and working conditions. Everyone in MSEA-SEIU bargaining units enjoys access to representational services. From day-to-day working conditions to health and safety issues to the bargaining table, we ensure all workers are treated fairly so we all can do our jobs well.

Affiliation with SEIU
In 1989, members of our union voted to affiliate with the Service Employees International Union, a 2-million member union representing workers all across our nation and throughout North America. SEIU members work in health care, public services and property services. Together, we all set the highest standard for quality services in Maine and across the nation. We accomplish this by making our voice heard on the important services we consistently deliver to Maine people, and by making our voice heard on issues affecting us.

We work with Maine’s elected leaders and national leaders to help foster a commitment to the high level of quality services Maine people deserve.

Dedicated workers
We genuinely want to make a difference at work by helping Maine people. That’s what MSEA-SEIU membership is all about, so please accept our invitation to become a member of our union today.
