Convention to Focus on Growth and Creating Economic Opportunity for Workers

The Change to Win Coalition supports UNITE HERE's decision to focus their energy and resources on a strategy ensuring workers are able to build a better future for themselves and their families. This dynamic union has set the standard for their commitment to organizing and growth and is a prime example of how our coalition will win for all workers. All of the unions of the Change to Win Coalition, and working people throughout the US, will be better off because of UNITE HERE's affiliation.

We look forward to standing together with them in the months and years ahead as we chart a new course for working families.
