Uniting Members to Make a Stronger Union

“I recruited five new members last year. Not everyone joins right away. But when they see us out there working and feel how important TDU is, they’re willing to do their part.”

“TDU brings fresh faces into our movement. It unites members from different industries to share the information and skills we need to make a stronger union.

“We’re only as strong as our members. If you believe in our union and this movement, help build TDU.”

Lupe Hernandez, Ralphs, Local 63, Los Angeles
