St. Peter Local 404

We are a union of nearly 900 members representing workers within the St. Peter Regional Treatment Center, including the Minnesota Security Hospital (MSH), Minnesota Sex Offender Program (MSOP), Competency Restoration Program (CRP), Forensic Transition Services, and the Forensic Nursing Home. We also represent workers at the Chemical Addiction Recovery Enterprise (CARE) facility in St. Peter and the Community Behavioral Health Hospital (CBHH) in Rochester. We fight for dignity and respect in the workplace with better wages, better benefits, and better working conditions.

At a time when our country needs real investments in infrastructure, education and public services, congressional leaders 

No politician running for office today would openly advocate for more wealth inequality in our country, where the richest 1 percent of the population owns 40 percent of the wealth. Even candidate Donald Trump in 2016 promised to stand up for the “forgotten men and women of our country,” who feel betrayed by a rigged economic system that benefits a small minority at their expense. Yet every single day, President Trump and congressional leaders seem determined to do more to increase wealth inequality than to alleviate it; do more for corporations and the wealthy than for single parents working two or three jobs to make ends meet.

Like others around the world, I mourned the death last week of Aretha Franklin.
