SEIU Local 1991 will once again be a proud participant in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure! The event will take place on Oct. 15th, 2011 in Bayfront Park, Downtown Miami at 7:30 a.m.
Our union will be covering registration costs for each SEIU Local 1991 member participating in the race. Following your registration, you will receive a T-shirt, along with information on where we will meet on Race Day. The deadline to register is Friday, September 30th.
Our goal is to raise $1,991.00 to support breast cancer programs and research. We can reach our fundraising goal if we collect $19.91 from 100 supporters. This year, you will be working with other members in your unit to raise donations. Talk to your co-workers, brainstorm fundraising ideas and ask your family, friends and fellow employees for donations for this important cause! The unit who raises the most money for Susan G. Komen will win a prize! For a pledge form, click here!

As Legislators marked the half-way point in the 2011 general session, nearly 100 Local 1991 members, CIR doctors and nurses from other unions, descended on Tallahassee to let our voices be heard about issues affecting our patients and profession.
After participating in educational sessions to learn about effective advocacy and the issues at play, our members fanned out around the capitol, discussing key issues with their Senators and Representatives. Topics discussed included proposed bills attacking collective bargaining, bills undermining the public sector pensions (particularly the FRS) and budgets in both houses which threaten severe cuts in education and healthcare.
More than 100 Local 1991 members arrived in Tallahassee on Wednesday, April 21, for our union’s annual Nurse Lobby Day. On Wednesday, our members toured the Capitol and attended an educational program about lobbying and advocacy skills. During the trip, members will be meeting with elected officials to lobby for safe staffing legislation, Jackson funding and other issues, followed by a press conference at the Capitol on Thursday. Check out these pictures from our event!
More than 50 SEIU Local 1991 members participated in the 2009 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Bayfront Park Miami.
Our team raised a total $860 in pledges! Thanks to all who participated!
