The Rise of the Service Employees International Union in the United States: Identifying Components of Success in Organized Labor

By reviewing the history of this union and identifying the strategies it uses today, this report attempts to analyze the reasons for the success of the Service Employees International Union in organizing. The overarching purpose of this report is to demonstrate how organized labor, as a whole, can apply the model used by this union to rebuild the labor movement in the United States.
