We have to work together so we’re able to keep the things we have, like our health care and other benefits.

Commercial workers rally in Delaware
Welcome to 32BJ SEIU Commercial

This is our largest division with 60,000 members working as office building cleaners throughout 32BJ’s geographic reach. By standing united unionwide, in 2011 we won new contracts that protect pay and benefits for four years for all of 32BJ’s commercial members.


We are powerful because people like you have stepped up to join the fight. We need your help leading contract campaigns, organizing non-union workers, and taking political action.
