Opposes Good-Paying JobsOn Jul 28, 2015 Latest updates
SEIU wants to kill jobs by opposing drilling in the Arctic Ocean. SEIU Local 6 signed onto the following statement:
The above labor unions, which represent over 60,000 workers in various industries across Washington State, declare our opposition to Royal Dutch Shell’s drilling in our Arctic waters and the use of our Port of Seattle’s Terminal 5 as their staging site… We hope that adding our voice encourages others to join the Shell No! Movement. At the same time we declare our support for a strong climate policy at the state, regional and national level to reduce our global warming pollution and ensure that as we reduce this pollution we do so with equitable transition at its core.
