Public Employee Recognition Month

SEIU is proud to announce that we have teamed up with Governor Gretchen Whitmer to proclaim the month of May as Public Service Recognition Month.  

As a public sector union, SEIU Local 517M knows firsthand the importance of public employees and has championed their dedication, professionalism, and adaptability throughout the pandemic.  

Our workforce is diverse. From scientists and engineers to paraprofessionals, road commission crews, unemployment insurance examiners,  technicians, librarians, city employees and more. We appreciate  your hard work and sacrifice.  

As we celebrate Public Service Recognition Month, we encourage all members to join us by submitting pictures of themselves at  work, write up a brief description about what you do, and send to for use in future publications.
