Everybody should have a union…. It gives us a voice. It gives you the power to change things that need to be changed.

Welcome to 32BJ SEIU NY Commercial

In 2011, New York’s 23,000 office building cleaners were part of 32BJ’s unionwide commercial contract campaign. We beat back real estate industry demands for drastic cuts to our pay and benefits, and successfully defended the standards we have spent decades establishing.
