History of Civil Service Forum
Local 300 SEIU

Civil Service Forum Local 300 Service Employees International Union (SEIU) was first organized in September 1914 by the Joint Council D.S.C. in New York City. Fifty years later, on September 30, 1964, the Union affiliated with the Building Service Employees International Union (BSEU), AFL-CIO, and was “known and designated as Civil Service Forum Local Union No. 300 of the Building Service Employees International Union”. BSEU was the predecessor to SEIU, founded on April 23, 1921, in Chicago to represent janitors, elevator operators, and window washers. It was in 1968 that BSEU officially became SEIU in order to reflect an increasingly diversified membership. Local 300, which started with only a handful of members, now has more than 1,200 active members, 500 retirees, and is the forerunner of all public employee organizations. It is the certified union representative for numerous City occupational groups, pursuing an active course of action with betterment for civil servants always the goal.
