  • Sign up employees as members of MSEA-SEIU and our political action program known as PASER, Political Action by Service Employees and Retirees;
  • Maintaining communication between MSEA-SEIU members and elected leaders;
  • Assist in the bargaining process by being a conduit of information for the bargaining team and the rank and file membership;
  • Assist in mobilizing members around worksite, contract and legislative issues;
  • Participate in new employee orientations;
  • Attend disciplinary meetings;
  • Investigate and process grievances through at least Step 3;
