WASHINGTON — A minority of elected leaders of UNITE HERE, the apparel and textile industry’s main union, voted Monday to dissolve the merger that brought 400,000 apparel and textile workers and hotel, laundry, restaurant and casino employees under one organization.
Twenty-five members of the union’s general executive board said in a resolution that the decision to combine UNITE(the Union of Needletrades, Industrial and Textile Employees) and the larger HERE (the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees International Union) in 2004 has been a “dismal failure.”

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
