Asian-Pacific Islander Committee

The Local 1000 Asian-Pacific Islander Committee will work to empower APIs in the labor movement by ensuring that API workers are recognized, valued, and respected. We will apply that power to share the social, economic, and political issues facing us by developing API members to lead in our Union, in our worksites and in our communities. We do so to leave a stronger, more inclusive union for future generations.
