Forming a union at your workplace gives you and your co-workers the power to stand up for your families, your futures and yourselves. Through a legal, binding contract it gives you a strong, collective voice with which to demand decent working conditions, with fair pay and benefits. Explaining the benefits of union membership to your fellow employees and assisting in planning an organizing drive. Once you and you co-workers become members, you choose your own contract negotiators and shop stewards. We develop contract language and proposals for negotiations. Local Union officers and business agents fight with you to win a fair, good-paying contract with job protection that you deserve.
We have earned our reputation for bargaining hard and demanding the best protections and wages. For a century solidarity has kept corporate America from holding the cards and calling all the shots. When you join, you put that history to work for you.
