WE ARE SEIU USWW!

  • "I'm with USWW because before I had a union I had to work two jobs to make ends meet. By joining with my fellow janitors and forming a union, we won respect on the job and the chance to earn enough to live in California."

  • "I'm with USWW because I think everyone deserves to be treated fairly. Joining together with other passenger service workers at LAX was the only way that I could have a strong voice on the job and joining together in a union is the only way working people can be strong advocates for themselves."

  • "I was proud that our security contract campaign also took on the problem of discrimination on the job. Discrimination prevents young black people from getting jobs and keeps them from being able to care for their families. Discrimination is destroying our communities."

  • "I was a victim of sexual violence while working as a janitor on the night shift. Working with my fellow janitors, we no only won a good contract that had new protections against sexual harassment and sexual violence, but we also passed a bill that extends these protections to all janitors in California. I'm so proud of the work I was able to do"
