Allies like Senator Elizabeth Warren, AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka, and more will join the delegates to celebrate five years of success since UNITE HERE’s last convention.
Since 2009, UNITE HERE has grown and changed the lives of thousands of working families—despite the effects of the global recession on hospitality and other industries we represent. Last year alone, UNITE HERE locals and affiliates organized nearly 10,000 new union workers.
Convention will give UNITE HERE leaders the opportunity to dedicate themselves publically to continue this level of growth. By the time of the next Convention, we want to have changed 50,000 more lives into ones with dignified wages, respect for safety, accessible family health care, and respect on the job.
