CTU works to educate, support and organize workers in addressing any injustices that they may be experiencing at the workplace. In working to pass policy change that affects low-wage workers and organizing large scale public campaigns, we empower workers to learn the root cause of worker abuse the process, publicly expose issues of wage theft, and give the broader community the opportunity to engage in supporting workers who are struggling to make positive change.
Our worker-led efforts have recovered over 1 million dollars in owed wages, and filed 940 worker-led cases. Using a popular education model, we have educated over 4,000 community members on their rights as immigrant workers. In the past year alone, we educated 1,725 community residents on general Know Your Rights and trained 932 workers on specific information pertaining to immigration, labor and the right to organize.
