Get The Benefits And Security You Need
Organize For A Better Workplace
Find your voice by organizing to protect yourself, your colleagues, and the community. A non-union company typically provides no (or sub-standard) benefits, and the pay scale is considerably less than union counterparts working in the same industry. This all equates to lower labor costs, and because of that, non-union businesses can charge less for their products and steal union business.
From better wages and health insurance to pensions and a grievance procedure, a union allows members to have the benefits and financial security they want from their employment. Therefore, we highly encourage our members and non-union friends alike to read through this website to find out how organizing protects jobs and offers members the fair treatment, respect, and dignity they deserve.
It’s Your Right To Organize!
The National Labor Relations Act (NLRB) gives you and your co-workers the following rights:
The right to join or help organize a union without being harassed or punished by your employer. The right to talk about the union, distribute union materials, or ask your co-workers to join the union on non-work time in non-work areas.
According to the law, your employer may NOT:
- Fire, discipline, lay you off, or cut your hours for supporting the union.
- Threaten, spy on you, or question you about the union.
- Threaten to close where you work, outsource part of your work, or get workers to vote against the union.
