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 Californians.
