The benefits we win come from us being strong together in the union.

~ Yeny Nuñez, 32BJ Member, Connecticut


Welcome to 32BJ SEIU Residential

More than 30,000 of 32BJ members are doormen, building maintenance workers, and superintendents working to make apartment buildings clean, safe, and welcoming to the people who call them home.
