WASHINGTON — Fifteen local boards of UNITE HERE, representing about 150,000 union members, voted on Saturday to break with the international parent union.
The move to disaffiliate occurred as leaders of the two predecessor unions that joined to form UNITE HERE in 2004 — the Union of Needletrades, Industrial & Textile Employees and the Hotel Employees & Restaurant Employees International — struggle for control over the union’s future.
