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

~ Leslie Williams, 32BJ Member, New Jersey


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. While we’re concentrated in New York City, we also work in New York’s Hudson Valley, northern New Jersey, and Washington, D.C.


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. If you’re interested in joining the fight and getting important union updates, fill out the contact information below:
