Our Mission

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

The Unit unit.

James Earl White

James 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, James 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, James enjoys music, dance, and the great outdoors.
