Who is ULU Local 100?

Local 100’s mission is to organize and represent unorganized service sector workers in the middle south states of Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas, and allow our members to create a vehicle to allow them a clear voice and real power in their workplace and their communities.  After more than 25 years as an SEIU local, in October 2009 Local 100 became independent again.

Shreveport Members Demand Internet for the Poor PDF Print E-mail

January 24th, 2012  Union members in Shreveport who work for Caddo Head Start and nursing homes throughout the region held a protest at the Shreveport Comcast Office on Quilen Rd. to demand that Comcast follow through on their commitment to bring affordable Internet services to low income families. 

Despite making agreements with the Government that they would provide lower cost services in exchange for being allowed to merge and take over competing companies, Comcast has failed to properly advertise the lower cost option to low income families and gives low income families who ask about the $9.99 service the "run around."   Local 100 members have asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to investigate the company for deceptive advertising and failure to follow through with their own agreement.
