Our union is part of the people movement to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. Our members in NY, NJ, and CT are consistently mobilizing, testifying in hearings and lobbying their local representatives.
The union launched two campaigns Laundry Workers fight for $15 and has recently launch
Warehouse Workers fight for $15. These campaigns allow us to highlight the work our members while increasing standards for all workers.
We are proud that New York City to pass legislation that will bring the minimum wage to $15 an hour. The fight continues, workers that work upstate NY, CT and NJ still do not have a minimum wage. We are going to be fighting for minimum wages in those areas.
