Pennsylvania Joint Board
A UNION ROOTED IN HISTORY
The Pennsylvania Joint Board of Worker’s United, SEIU, (PAJB), represents approximately 5000 workers employed by 40 employers spanning from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh. Our membership is diverse, and includes garment workers, food service workers, distribution center workers, and industrial laundry workers.
Workers United has a deeply rooted history representing garment workers. We are the former International Ladies Garment Workers‘ Union, which was created in 1900 to fight sweatshops and bring decent working conditions. The ILGWU was one the first U.S. unions to have a primarily female membership.Today we still hold the values close from over 100 years ago; every worker deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
