A fair number of my coworkers are international and already are held hostage by their visa status. In what ways might this complicate our organizing efforts?

I think you generally have to be on the USA to be a member of a union here but you should check with an organizer. Either way this won’t stop you from unionizing. Worst case is international employees are not members. This is common in media as well .

If over 50% sign cards you can have a union. Generally you want a higher percentage though for morale purposes. But people who are legally excluded don’t count in the total possible number
