Homecare and Personal Support Workers is being established. We are

the current population of 33,000 workers as well as new caregivers

benefit plans negotiated and sponsored by the State of Oregon and
SEIU 503, the labor union for long-term care and public services
workers in Oregon. If you want to make a difference in the lives of
these workers and the seniors and people with disabilities who they
