Be a part of the movement of low wage workers that is confronting corporate greed and winning safety, dignity and respect on the job through solidarity and action! UNITE HERE Local 8 is seeking Organizing Apprentices in the Seattle Metro region to organize in the hospitality industry. We take on multi-national corporations by building worker-led committees. We organize people to stand up for their rights, stick together and stay motivated in the struggle for justice.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made inequality in the Seattle Metro region much worse. Billionaires like Jeff Bezos have seen massive growth in their wealth, while hospitality and food service workers face record unemployment and insecurity.

Prior to the start of the pandemic, UNITE HERE Local 8 represented over 7,000 hospitality workers in Oregon & Washington State -- in hotels, restaurants, food service, and airport concessions. A majority of workers in these industries are still laid off. Local 8 members are connecting with other unemployed workers to fight for safety and security in their jobs during this pandemic, and building power so hospitality workers won't be left out of the economic recovery.

Local 8′s parent union, UNITE HERE, represents hotel, food service, and gaming workers throughout the US and Canada. For more information visit www.unitehere.org and https://www.facebook.com/Local8.
