PRESIDENT’S REPORT

BY: MICHAEL JETER

Hello brothers and sisters of Local 722.

We Can. We Will. We Must Strive to Achieve.

The year is halfway over, and Local 722 will continue to fight for our members’ work rights and ensure everyone is treated fairly. This year, there has been positive movement at both Washington Hospital Center and Children’s Hospital, including:

  • Hiring Equity
  • Market Adjustments
  • Grade Changes
  • Grievances

Here is some information about the NEW PRESIDENT OF SEIU, APRIL VERRETT. At SEIU’s recent convention in Philadelphia, Local 722 had the profound honor of helping SEIU elect its BRAND NEW President and leadership team. We voted for leaders who support SEIU’s million members and millions more workers across the country. April Verrett will now lead the SEIU INTERNATIONAL UNION into a new era of worker power!

Local 722 is in high spirits, and we hope the membership joins in welcoming April Verrett, SEIU’s first Black woman president, to her new position.

The birthplace of SEIU is Chicago, and April Verrett is also from Chicago. April’s young life wasn’t easy. Before she was a teenager, she experienced firsthand the effects of structural racism and economic hardship. When her parents passed away at an early age, April’s grandmother, a proud SEIU union steward, stepped in to raise her. She taught her the promise of collective power.
