Exciting news about the future of our union!
Last week, hundreds of workers from UNITE HERE Local 8 and Local 9 voted to merge into one local. This means:
- More solidarity throughout the Northwest, especially where there are common
employers located in the Seattle and Portland areas;
- Saving on administrative costs, so more resources are devoted to organizing;
- More focus on regional issues that impact all of us; and
- A stronger union!
The new local will be called UNITE HERE Local 8.
