Southwest Regional Joint Board
Make It Happen!
The Southwest Regional Joint Board was formed in 1965 and represents workers in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Texas. Our members work in Manufacturing, Food Service, Laundries, Distribution and Xerox Graphics. We also represent workers in the Public Sector, City of Dallas. Our members work diligently on issues affecting them every day: Immigration Reform, Health Care, Fight for $15, Organizing new members, Racial and Economic Justice, Building Coalition Partners, Educating members and much more…
Our vision for the Southwest Region is to build a stronger union, to lead and intensify the struggle for Workers Power, ensure Economic Justice, embrace diversity and secure the promise of Liberty for workers, families and communities.
The Southwest Region recognizes that our changing Society demands that we dedicate ourselves to training for leadership, to organize for growth, to mobilize for change and to educate for power.
It is critical that we now inspire each other, restore our hope, draw strength from our experiences and our past, celebrate our victories both great and small, hold ourselves accountable though continuous evaluation and always remember that our Society and Nation are a better place because we are here.
We are particularly proud of our Youth Council, which was created in August of 2016. Our next generation of labor leaders, comprised of the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of our membership, learn about the history of organized labor and share the story with their peers.
Workers United holds the community of Uvalde, Texas in our hearts; It is time for sensible and effective gun laws. If not now, when?
Our hearts ache for the mothers and fathers who lost their children, and the entire community of Uvalde, Texas who lost 19 children and two adults to a teenage murderer who had access to guns.
No company in America is busting unions as shamelessly as Starbucks is right now. President Joe Biden and his labor board could put a stop to it — if they choose to.
