- Marcia, Home Health Care Provider

I'm caring for my adult child in my own home. I am not a Washington State employee and I certainly never wanted to be an SEIU member. If people want to join a union, that is their prerogative. I never understood why I didn't have the same choice. SEIU membership was forced upon me. I don't agree with SEIU policies or politics. They took money from our family every month, without my permission and used it for it promote policies I disagree with. I had no choice in the matter until Harris v. Quinn and Freedom Foundation came to the rescue.

- Cindy, Child Care Provider

Over the years childcare in Washington has become a big business, and SEIU is cashing in on it. I never joined the union, despite being visited at home by SEIU representatives. I wanted to keep my voice. I don't want some big, unknown political entity speaking for me. Nevertheless, state law compelled me to pay SEIU. Thankfully, the Supreme Court's Harris v. Quinn decision allows family child care providers the opportunity to choose for ourselves whether to pay dues to SEIU 925.
