WHO ARE WE?

Our membership is diverse, comprising workers from many immigrant communities as well as high percentages of African-American, Latino, and Asian American workers. We are predominantly women and people of color, and we hail from all corners of the planet. Together, we are building a movement to enable people of all backgrounds to achieve greater equality and opportunity.

HOTELS


The hotel industry is booming, and Local 11 members in Los Angeles and Orange Counties are making this boom possible. Their continued organizing ensures that hotel workers share in the growing prosperity of the hospitality sector.

AIRPORTS


Our members are among the friendly faces who greet you when you land in most of the airports in the region. We also represent the unseen army responsible for the preparation and delivery of tens of thousands of in-flight meals each day.

FOOD SERVICE 

Our members are food service workers in corporate cafeterias, airports, universities, sports stadiums, and convention centers.

IMMIGRATION REFORM


IMMIGRATION REFORM

We are very excited that President Obama has provided immigration relief to millions of undocumented workers and their families in the United States in the form of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) program and the Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (“DAPA”) program.

We want all our members to know and understand if they are eligible for these new reforms to provide immediate protection from deportation. Here is what you need to know. You are eligible for deferred action under DACA if:

  • You arrived to the United States before your sixteenth birthday.

  • You have lived continuously in the U.S. since January 1, 2010. 

  • You are enrolled in school, or have graduated from high school or college, or have earned a GED certificate, or have been honorably discharged from the Coast Guard or armed forces. 

  • You have not committed a significant crime nor do you pose a threat to national security or public safety. 

You are eligible for deportation relief and work authorization under the DAPA program if:

  • You have a child that is either a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident.

  • You lived continuously in the United States since January 1, 2010.

  • You were physically present in the U.S. on November 20, 2014.

  • You are willing to pay back taxes on earned income

  • You have not committed a significant crime nor do you pose a threat to national security or public safety. 

WARNING: Contact ONLY a qualified immigration lawyer or an accredited representative for legal advice about your case. If your workplace is part of our Union legal fund, you can contact a lawyer for free at Hadsell, Stormer & Redick LLP at (626) 773-3214.

Do NOT take advice about your immigration case from a notary public or an immigration consultant.

NOTE:  DAPA and the new rules on DACA are currently on hold, and applications are not currently being accepted.  Visit this website for updates.

EMPLOYER-PAID PENSION

In many Local 11 contracts, your union pension is another significant benefit that members have won that costs you nothing because it is paid entirely by your employer.

The Pension's primary purpose is to provide you with a steady source of income when you retire. In this plan, the employer is obligated to contribute an hourly amount toward each employee’s account. Vested retired union members then receive a monthly check, in addition to Social Security and any other retirement savings or investment. The monthly pension is based on the size of the contribution and the number of years worked by the employee.

Pension plans vary by employer and/or region. Contact your union representative for more details.

FILE A GRIEVANCE

The union representatives on Local 11's Contract Enforcement Team work to ensure that all union contracts and collective bargaining agreements are respected and adhered to by the companies with which Local 11 negotiates.
 
The Contract Enforcement Team encourages workers to stand up for their rights by filing grievances when they feel they have been disciplined or terminated without just cause. We represent all workers in the grievance, mediation and arbitration processes. We hold the companies accountable for their treatment of workers and empower workers to do the same through action and organization.
 
If you need to file a grievance, visit a Local 11 office. Click here to locate the Union office nearest you.
