Unions Join "We Are America Alliance "

The We Are America Alliance is a newly-forming nationwide alliance of immigrant, grassroots, labor, local, statewide and national organizations.
We are an alliance of key immigrant, grassroots, labor, local, and national organizations joining together to:

Produce a million new voters and citizens between now and Election Day 2006

Press our lawmakers to stop the punitive and harsh HR 4437

Enact real and comprehensive immigration reform that provides a path to citizenship for America's undocumented immigrants, reunites families, respects civil rights, and protects all workers.

National Day Laborers Organizing Network : NDLON is composed of 30 community-based organizations that work with day laborers in different capacities to advance the human, labor, and civil rights of day workers throughout the United States and to strengthen and expand the work of local day laborer organizing groups.

Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (Northwest Treeplanters and Farmworkers United) (Woodburn, OR) : PCUN works closely with a wide variety of local and national organizations to promote legalization for undocumented workers and to ensure immigrants' rights both federally and in Oregon.

Service Employees International Union (SEIU) : With 1.8 million members nationwide, SEIU has been working with our coalition partners in 33 states to educate and mobilize members in support of sensible immigration reform that will help raise standards for all working people.

UNITE HERE!: With more than 440,000 active members and more than 400,000 retirees throughout North America, UNITE HERE's diverse membership includes a high percentage of immigrant workers who labor primarily in the hotel, restaurant, textile, apparel, and hospitality industries.

...and more.
