The Western States Regional Joint Board (WSRJB) is a growing, progressive union of 10,000 workers at industrial laundries, warehouses, and other jobs in California, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico.

We are part of Workers United, a North American union representing 100,000 workers, with over 100 years of history fighting for the working class as UNITE!, the International Ladies Garment Workers Union (ILGWU), and the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union (ACTWU).

We are affiliated with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), North America's fastest growing union, representing over 2 million workers. We are stronger together!
