Our Mission & Vision

Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the lives of working people and their families and to achieve greater social and economic justice.

Our Vision for a Just Society

We believe in and will fight for a just society:

  • Where all workers are valued and all people are respected;
  • Where all families and communities thrive;
  • Where we leave a better and more equal world for generations to come.


The Union Difference

Here are just a few of the major benefits of being a member of the Union:


Wages, Benefits,

Working Conditions

By working together with your co-workers, you can bargain for better wages, benefits and working conditions protected by your contract. Without the Union, management has all the power.
Promotions Promotions and open positions are awarded fairly when we are stronger together. Without the Union, your boss can choose whomever they want and you have no say in the matter.
Discipline Through the strength of our Union, we are able to force management to prove they had “just cause” before disciplining or discharging any member. Without the Union, management can discipline or fire you for any reason or no reason at all. You are an at-will employee.
Vacations, Paid Time Off, Sick Leave As Union members, you get to sit down and work together with your co-workers to negotiate benefits like vacations, paid time off and sick leave. Without the Union, your employer decided when or if you get to take time off.
