About Us

Founded in Queens, NY in 2007, Brandworkers is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting local food factory workers with the training, infrastructure, and community​ to build unions for​ ​dignified jobs and power in society. 

Our vision is a food system where food factory workers set standards for dignified working conditions and democratically operate the industry through direct action, solidarity, and worker-led unions. 

With the IWW as our union partner, Brandworkers trains workers to build their own worker-led-and-operated solidarity unions.

Brandworkers is growing to additionally support workers in North Jersey food factories to build power and raise standards across the metropolitan food manufacturing industry.
