As both a labor leader and an activist, Stern is a leading voice and a prominent advocate for people who work. Called a “courageous, visionary leader who charted a bold new course for American unionism,” Stern’s practical solutions to achieve economic opportunity and justice for all workers have earned the respect of workers, business leaders and policy makers on both sides of the aisle. Under his tenure as president, SEIU bucked the trend and through its signature national and global organizing campaigns Justice for Janitors, There Is No Place Like Home (home care workers), Kids First (child care), grew by more than 1.2 million workers, turning traditionally underpaid service work into jobs that can help support a family and lift up a community.
