Dear Sisters and Brothers of SEIU –
It is with a heavy heart that I must share the sad news of the passing
of Seth Rosen – a great father, husband, friend and leader.
Seth was the Vice President of the Communications Workers of America,
District 4 and a friend to all workers in Ohio and around the world.
Seth knew that workers in America had strength and power to fight for
what is right, they just needed a catalyst to get them organized and
Seth Rosen cared enough to inspire us all to build a better world for
working people and their families. Through Seth’s leadership, we were
able to defeat attacks on workers’ rights in Ohio through the repeal of
Senate Bill 5 and develop new partnerships that allow community and
labor partners to work together for good jobs and stronger communities.
Personally, Seth was a dear friend and my stalwart partner in the labor
movement, with a common goal of social and economic justice for all
In Solidarity and Remembrance,
Becky Williams, President
SEIU District 1199
