Union Links

Workers United
Industrial and service union, representing workers in manufacturing, distribution, laundries, hotels, casinos and more. The premier union when it comes to organizing. Workers United has its roots in the old Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union (ACTWU). In 1996, it merged with the International Ladies Garment Workers Union (ILGWU) to form UNITE. In 2004, it again merged with the Hotel and Restaurant Employees Union (HERE) to form UNITE HERE. In 2009, due to irreconcilable differences, it disaffiliated from the merger to form Workers United, and is now an autonomous affiliate of SEIU.

Service Employees International Union - One of the largest and most progressive unions in the United States, representing several million workers within health care, food service, laundries, and numerous other service industries.

Service Workers United - An innovative hybrid union, jointly administered by SEIU, Workers United, and UNITE HERE. This union represents employees of Aramark, Compass, an Sedexo in their laundries and food service facilities across America.
