Women’s History Month Profiles: Annette Wright-De Campos

Annette Wright-De Campos

This year, for Women’s History Month, we’re taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making women’s history across the labor movement. Check back daily for a new profile and meet some of the people working to improve not only their community, but also to improve conditions for working people across the country. Today’s profile is Annette Wright-De Campos of the Culinary Union (UNITE HERE).

After becoming a Culinary Union member in 1987, Annette Wright-De Campos brought her children to the union picket lines because they benefited from the health plans members were fighting to keep. The strike was personal to her because her family needed the benefits a union contract provided. Being a Culinary Union member meant finding security and hope for her family.
