Workers United NY/NJ is a union for all workers, and we represent people in a wide variety of industries including manufacturing, retail, garment-making, food service, cannabis and tech. We are currently active in two major campaigns: to unionize Starbucks and to transform NY’s nail salon industry. Please click the graphics below to learn more about our efforts.

As Starbucks Workers United, we are organizing a union to bring out the best in all of us. Our organizing committee includes Starbucks partners from across the Buffalo region. Many of us have invested years of our lives at Starbucks, while others have recently become partners. We all have one thing in common -- we want the company to succeed and we want our work lives to be the best they can be.

Founded in 2014 by Adhikaar and the New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (NYCOSH), and joined by Workers United NY NJ Regional Joint Board in 2015, the NY Healthy Nail Salons Coalition was formed around the central idea that nail salon workers deserve just jobs: healthy workplaces with living wages and a voice in their working conditions.
