Solidarity Forever! WA and OR Come Together

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.
