A Union is a group of people who decide to work together toward common ideals and goals. As a member of a Union, you’ll be able to join with your co-workers to negotiate for the benefits that matter most to you all.
Unions give each individual the power of a united workforce to negotiate with the company, giving you more leverage than you would ever have on your own. You’ll have a voice in determining your wages, working conditions, benefits, safety procedures, and more.
If you’re wondering if a union can help improve your working conditions, review the following list. Do you have all of the following benefits at work?
- Fair pay
- Regular wage increases
- Written contracts
- Defined work schedules
- Reasonable workload requirements
- A safe work environment
- Healthcare plans
- Retirement plans
- Paid sick days
- Paid holidays
- Representation when you are mistreated at work
- Grievance procedures
- Job security
- Seniority rights
If not, a Union can help you fight for the benefits and wages you deserve, as well as have a voice in negotiation for other benefits that are important to you and your coworkers. In addition, unions provide grievance procedures that allow you to speak up if your contract isn’t honored.
Most employers would rather avoid increasing your pay or giving you additional benefits. We can help you organize a Union in your workplace and then work with you to improve your life and the lives of your coworkers.
