Local 1000’s purpose is to bring working people together to build
and to focus their power…power that can lead to real change in
the world. That power starts at the worksite and radiates outward
to our members’ families, friends and communities.
Local 1000’s representation at work is both a check on employer
abuses as well as a force to advocate for the rights of all
workers to live balanced, happy lives. When we organize a
worksite, we unite workers by building a relationship that will
not only improve their working conditions but also give them the
tools to improve their own lives and communities.
When we work together to organize worksites for representation
and to enforce the contracts our members have fought hard for, we
maximize our strength and our voice in the workplace. We also
serve as a foundation for economic and social justice for all
