About Us

Good Jobs DC is a coalition of labor unions in the D.C. metro area standing up for quality jobs, shared prosperity and equitable economic development.

The District of Columbia is experiencing a development boom, but working people are getting left behind. Despite rapid growth in the city and ample new construction, many of the district’s working families are facing impoverishment and displacement. Thousands of residents are struggling daily to get by on poverty wages.

We believe that it’s past time for developers to start working with the unions that represent D.C. workers. And the district must no longer support real estate development projects with low-quality, low-wage jobs that force residents out of the city and worsen inequality.
