Organization History

The Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees International Union (HERE) received its original charter from the American Federation of Labor in 1891, organizing separate local affiliates for bartenders, waiters, cooks, waitresses and other skilled workers. In 1973, the Union was reorganized, merging all local unions into one Local to represent all hospitality workers within a given region, regardless of craft.
The Hotel & Restaurant Employees and Bartenders International Union Local 2 in San Francisco was particularly active in the late 1970's and early 1980's (the time covered by this archive), engaging in several strikes.
