Being part of a union can enhance the overall well-being of individuals. It gives workers a say in essential workplace concerns such as safety and staffing, improving their job performance. Moreover, union membership offers many benefits, such as higher wages, better healthcare coverage, and increased financial stability during retirement. As a result, unions help their members thrive while contributing to the American workforce’s continued success.
As a part of a union, you have the strength that comes from numbers and, through your union, the ability to select able staff people – negotiators, lawyers, research specialists, and others – skilled in collective bargaining. Only as part of a group do you have the economic strength that permits bargaining with the employer on a basis approaching equality.
