SEIU to Represent Milwaukee Crossing Guards
Source: SEIU

Milwaukee Today, the Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission (WERC) declared SEIU Local 150 the union now representing Milwaukee’s crossing guards. Workers voted overwhelmingly for SEIU representation with a 3-1 vote. There are 230 crossing guards employed by the city of Milwaukee.

“This is great news for Milwaukee’s crossing guards,” said SEIU Local 150 and Wisconsin State Council President Mike Thomas. “Regardless of our current political climate and the struggles we are facing statewide, workers are not discouraged from seeking a voice on the job. They understand how SEIU and other unions can help them gain safe working conditions, fair pay, and family-supporting benefits. This is not just a victory for the crossing guards, but a victory for all workers and for the safety of our children in the city of Milwaukee.”

SEIU Wisconsin State Council coordinates the legislative and political agenda of Wisconsin’s eight SEIU locals. SEIU is the nation’s largest and fastest growing union with 2.2 million members nationwide and 18,000 members in Wisconsin. Visit for more information
