Warehouse Workers for Justice and Temp Worker Union Alliance Project Announce Integration Partnership
Warehouse Workers for Justice (WWJ) and the Temp Worker Union Alliance Project (TWUAP) announce their integration partnership, building collective power among Warehouse Workers, Temp Workers and Unions.
The Temp Worker Union Alliance Project (TWUAP) is a project housed in Warehouse Workers for Justice. TWUAP is made up of union leaders, worker center leaders, and allies. TWUAP rallies around concerns over the rise of non-union temp labor and the need to collectively fight to build both worker power and the power of locals. TWUAP aims to strengthen the labor movement by helping temp workers win economic stability and quality union jobs.
Warehouse Workers for Justice is a worker center fighting for good living-wage jobs in Illinois' warehouse and transportation industry. Warehouse Workers for Justice builds political and economic power for working families and community-led infrastructure for progressive organizing in a pivotal area for both Illinois statewide politics and national economic justice fights in warehousing and logistics.
"WWJ cares about temp workers," said WWJ Executive Director Roberto Clack. "This is work that we’ve always been involved in, so we’re very happy about the partnership with TWUAP to further that work."
"Having the support from a well-established worker center like WWJ can greatly enhance the potential reach for TWUAP," said TWUAP Director and Lead Organizer Jannelle White.
