UNITE HERE Local 30 is the hotel and hospitality workers’ union in San Diego. We represent over 6,000 hotel, gaming, and food service workers throughout San Diego County.

We are a democratic union driven by rank and file members. Our goal is to raise standards in the hospitality and tourism industry in San Diego and transform San Diego hotel jobs into good middle class jobs.

Our priorities are to negotiate great contracts for our members, empower workers to have a voice on the job and organize non-union workers.

We are proud to be a diverse union, comprised largely of immigrants and women. We count many African Americans, Latinos and Asian Americans among our ranks.
