Unions give you a voice at work
As a member of a Union, you’ll have the opportunity to negotiate with your company for the wages, benefits and working conditions that matter to you, like fair wages, strong safety measures, retirement benefits, and more.
Benefits of Union Contracts
Our Union members enjoy better wages and benefits than their non-Union peers. Protect the benefits that matter most to you, like health insurance, overtime pay, vacation time, sick leave, and regular wage increases.
Your Right to a Union
There are federal laws that protect your involvement with a Union and keep you safe from any retaliation. You have the right to organize a Union at your workplace or join a Union of your choosing.

Every organizing effort is unique. Local 342 has organized dozens of workplaces, and we would be happy to talk with you about the specific issues you are facing and how we can help to correct them.
