Our Mission

We are on a mission to improve the American workplace by empowering workers everywhere to organize, form labor unions, and negotiate in good faith with their employers.

The Unit unit.

Jamie Earl White

Jamie Earl White is the founder of Unit of Work. After moving from Texas to Boston to attend MIT, he became passionate about reducing the growing quality of living gap in the United States. While volunteering with union organizing efforts, Jamie realized there were a lack of online resources for workers looking to unionize their workplace, and decided to create a platform to guide and empower workers through the process. In his free time, Jamie enjoys music, dance, and the great outdoors.
