Gregory (Greg) Sorozan, President

Greg has been a state employee for 40 years and has worked for the Department of Social Services. He has been a steward for SEIU Local 509 when he was a social worker. When he was promoted into the Central Office of DSS, Greg became a steward and then Executive Board Member for this Local. Since becoming President, Greg has more than tripled the number of stewards and contact people for representing members. Communication vehicles such as newsletters, stewards newsletters, email “push list”, enhanced website have all been instituted. Additionally, he has moved this local union to be proactive (and not only reactive) by developing Labor/Management Subcommittees (See Article 25 of CBA) in many of the Departments represented by this local. Greg currently is serving as Co-State Coordinator, along with Professor David Yamada, for the Healthy Workplace Bill (House Bill 1766), because of his abiding interest in Workplace Bullying. This is done on his own time, but for our membership and for the union as a whole.
