Los Angeles Becomes the First City with More Than a Dozen Unionized Carwashes

May 7, 2014

With more than a dozen local carwashes now unionized, Los Angeles is leading the way for union carwash workers. The 133 new unionized carwasheros are represented by the United Steelworkers Local 675. The carwash owners where these employees work also have agreed by contract to comply with all labor, health and safety regulations and give their workers a 2% raise. Workers are now able to enforce these working standards by themselves through a grievance procedure.
