Bruce Raynor, general president of UNITE HERE, the main textile and apparel union that also represents hotel and restaurant employees, said here that he is pressing the campaign on four fundamental policy issues: fair trade deals, a bill that would make it easier for employees to unionize, a minimum wage increase and establishing a legal path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.
