1043943_555620371140508_1487472661_nUNITE HERE is a labor union that represents 270,000 working people across North America. Our members in the U.S. and Canada work in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, transportation, and airport industries.

Our membership is diverse. We are predominantly women and people of color, and we hail from all corners of the planet. We are among the largest unions in Philadelphia, representing 7000 hotel, gaming, and food service workers. We are housekeepers, servers, cashiers, cafeteria workers, bartenders, porters, banquet workers, and cooks in Philadelphia. Together we are building a strong, democratic union. We believe that all workers deserve respect and a voice on the job, and we are fighting for justice in our workplaces and our community.

Partners for Equality on Campus and Beyond

Students across the U.S. and Canada have changed thousands of lives as activists with UNITE HERE.

Strong student-labor committees work for greater responsibility and accountability from school administrations and university-affiliated corporations for fair wages, affordable health care, equal rights for LGBTQ people, and immigration reform. Students also have been part of winning major improvements in working conditions and the right to organize in their dining halls. At Pomona College in California, for example, students stood side-by-side with unorganized workers to help them form a union with workplace protections for immigrants.

Real Food Real Jobs

Through the initiative called Real Food Real Jobs, UNITE HERE partners with students to tackle issues in campus food systems, including workers’ rights, sustainable food initiatives, and transparency in university food service contracting.
