My name is Remzi Jaos. As Division Director of Higher Education at Local 73, I grew the Division from 2,600 to more than 4,000 members in five years. I processed thousands of grievances and led 11 bargaining teams through successful contract campaigns, in some cases doubling members’ salaries. These skills are essential to building a strong union that can win the pay and benefits you deserve. As a rank and file union member, I learned the pain of having a union that won’t return a phone call or handle a grievance. I will build a team that will provide the representation you have a right to. The Members Leading Members team will have the backs of our workers every step of the way. I am proud to be slated with such a diverse group whose skills complement each other so well. You deserve leadership that will build SEIU Local 73 into a powerful union that can win strong contracts, fair pay, and good benefits. I envision a Local strong enough to fight for respect in the workplace, justice in the community, and dignity in retirement for you, the Local 73 membership, and every worker.
