About Us

Founded in 1983, the Union of Union Representatives (UUR) represents staff of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and SEIU Local 925.  We are organizers, researchers, communicators, administrative staff and union reps, united to fight for economic and social justice for workers and their families.  For over 25 years, we have stood side by side with workers organizing to win representation and build a strong, vibrant, and accountable labor movement.

About this Blog

UUR is currently facing many of the same challenges as the workers with whom we organize on a daily basis.  The founders of UUR and our members today believe that all union staffers deserve the same respect and job security as the workers we help organize.  We started this blog as a way to communicate with our members and allies about our own struggle for justice in our workplace.  We also plan to use the blog as a place to share ideas about the role staff unions can play in advancing the cause and the values of the labor movement.  We hope that, by using the platform of new media, we will foster new alliances with our sisters and brothers outside UUR that can move us forward, together, toward our common goals.
