WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT
We are the largest U.S.-based international worker rights organization partnering directly with workers and their unions, and supporting their struggle for respect, fair wages, better workplaces and a voice in the global economy.

And at our core is every worker’s right to solve issues through collective action and to form unions.
