We stand for helping employers succeed based on providing the highest quality of work in the world and by being responsible members of our communities.

We stand for a strong union movement that can restore the strength of the middle class, and we are doing our share with one of the union movement’s most ambitious organizing commitments to help tens of thousands of working people join together.
