We are the Workers Organizing Committee of Chicago (WOCC) a union of Chicago retail and food workers who have come together to fight for respect and a livable wage of $15.00 an hour. We represent over 100 different employers, our backgrounds and stories differ greatly but we have all struggled to survive and support our families despite our hard work.
Click Here to Join Our Fight for the Following:
- DIGNITY & RESPECT: We deserve to be recognized and acknowledged as hardworking employees who make a valuable contribution—not ignored or treated as cogs in a machine.
- LIVABLE WAGE OF $15 AN HOUR: We demand an hourly wage of no less than fifteen dollars an hour, the minimum wage that will provide for our most basic needs.
- FAIR CONTRACT: We demand that that our employers negotiate a fair contract with our newly formed union.
