    Eliseo Medina

    2019 Honoree

    Eliseo Vasquez Medina (born January 24, 1946) is a Mexican American labor union activist and leader, and advocate for immigration reform in the United States. From 1973 to 1978, he was a board member of the United Farm Workers. He was also secretary-treasurer of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) until his resignation in 2013.

     

    Medina was born in Zacatecas, Mexico and grew up in Central California where he attended public school and worked as a picker on the weekends and during school vacations to help earn money for his family.

     

    On September 16, 1965, became a "strike captain" in the Delano Grape Strike helping organize the picketers. In the spring of 1966 was recruited by Delores Huerta to be a union organizer. His experiences during the early organizing campaigns attracted the attention of Cesar Chavez, who he worked closely with as he rose within the ranks of the organization to become one of its leaders during its years of greatest strength.

     

    Medina began working full-time for the UFW in 1966. He worked in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago. In January 1968, Medina crossed the nation in a school bus with farmworkers to build support in the boycott of products made from Delano grapes. On September 23, 1973, Eliseo Medina was elected for the first time to the UFW Board of Directors. In early 1978, Medina was appointed the UFW's organizing director. In his first three months in office, the union won 13 elections and added more than 3,000 new members.

     

    In 1986, Eliseo Medina was appointed executive director of SEIU Local 2028, a public employee union based in San Diego, CA. Medina turned around the "failing" local growing its membership from 1,700 to 10,000. In 1996, Medina ran for the position of international vice president on the SEIU executive board and won, becoming first Mexican American elected to an international office at SEIU. In 2010, he was unanimously elected international secretary-treasurer of the SEIU, that represents more than one million workers nationwide.

     

    Medina retired from SEIU in 2013 to concentrate more of his time on winning passage of immigration reform. In November and December 2013, Medina undertook a 22-day hunger strike, at the age of 67, to draw attention to the need for action on immigration reform. During his fast, Medina was visited by President Obama in a tent near the Capitol in Washington, DC.
