SEIU West was created through the merger of three SEIU locals: Local 299, Local 333, and Local 336.

Local 299's membership consisted of school board employees in both the Public and Catholic school systems, as well as employees from the health-care sector and in a variety of industries. Local 333's members worked as health providers in the health-care sector, community-based organizations, private care homes and group homes. Local 336's founding members were employed primarily in the health care sector. 336 broadened its representation to include education workers, caretakers, office and clerical workers, crisis service workers, and municipal workers.
