UNITE HERE has NOT taken on the name of Workers United, as this story indicates. Workers United is a completely new union that was birthed by SEIU to raid UNITE-HERE's industry jurisdiction.

Cintas should be smart and pull out of Los Angeles to get away from non-productive living wage laws.

SEIU and Workers United are just parasites who feed off of ignorant workers. They take the union dues and send them to the Democratic Party.
