The Union Difference
Here are just a few of the major benefits of being a member of the Union:
|UNION||WITHOUT A UNION|
|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.|
