A 28 year veteran of the labor movement, Long has a long-standing commitment to lifting the lives of low-wage service workers, especially in communities of color. As president of SEIU Local 82 (which later merged with SEIU 32BJ), Long led - and won - a 10-year fight to bring better wages and respect on the job for thousands of property service workers in Washington, D.C. as part of SEIU's Justice for Janitors campaign. Following her tenure at Local 82, Long served as Vice President of Local SEIU 32BJ, the largest property services union in the country.

Valarie Long, SEIU Executive Vice President
Executive Vice President
Activist. Organizer. Leader. Valarie Long is the International Executive Vice President of the Property Services Division of the Service Employees International Union, representing more than 400,000 janitors, security officers, airport workers, food service, light manufacturing, laundry and maintenance workers across North America.
Valarie brings nearly 30 years of experience developing leaders to her role as the International Executive Vice President of SEIU's Leaders in Action for Justice, the leadership programs for members, staff and elected leaders that are designed to prepare the scale of talented and inclusive leaders we need to win our campaigns now and lead the movement for social and economic justice for generations to come.
Valarie's first organizing campaign was her own worksite. While living in Columbus, Ohio and working for the state in data entry, she helped her co-workers form a union and quickly rose from rank-and-file leader to become a full-time union organizer. She soon joined SEIU District 925 on the University of Cincinnati campaign and became part of the national movement to address issues of pay inequality, family and medical leave -- so called "women's issues" -- as union issues by building power in the workplace.
As part of SEIU's Justice for Janitors campaign, Valarie helped pioneer the innovative model of organizing city-wide master agreements to win better wages, better conditions, improved health-care, and full-time opportunities for a largely Latino and immigrant, subcontracted workforce. Now in more than 30 North American cities, the Justice for Janitors campaign continues to inspire workers worldwide.
As director of SEIU's Property Services Division, Valarie spread this successful model to help unite tens of thousands of security officers.
A long-time immigrant justice advocate, Valarie was one of 100 women to be arrested for demonstrating on Capitol Hill in September 2013 to help keep families together and win commonsense immigration reform. It was one of more than a dozen times she has risked arrest standing on the courage of her convictions and engaging in non-violent civil disobedience.
Valarie's dedication to build power for low-wage workers extends beyond borders. She serves on the steering committee of Union Network International (UNI) property service section, a global union federation that represents more than 1 million workers united in 125 unions across 70 countries and holds agreements with the three largest cleaning and security companies in the world.
Before being elected by her peers to serve as Executive Vice President of SEIU, she was the elected president of SEIU Local 82 and vice president of SEIU Local 32BJ. She also served as assistant to the president for staff development, SEIU organizing director and SEIU deputy director of education.
She is a proud mother, grandmother and gardener living in Laurel, Maryland.
