In 2000, SEIU member delegates adopted the New Strength Unity Plan to restructure and unite workers in similar industries to form more powerful and effective local unions. One result was the California Unite to Win plan, which was approved by an overwhelming 88% majority of California SEIU members in October 2006. Unite to Win paved the way for the formation of SEIU 1021. In January 2007, Local 1021 united SEIU members from 10 locals in Northern California.Today SEIU Local 1021 represents over 54,000 public sector workers across Northern California.
