How and Why
Did you know that unionized workers make an average of 26% more than non-unionized workers?
Have you felt bringing your co-workers together at your workplace and bargaining collectively for pay, benefits, and hours would be more successful than “going it alone?”
What a union can do:
Union organizing is hard work. But you can do it! It requires lots of one-on-one contact with your coworkers. It requires involvement and participation. When successful, organizing can be one of the most emotionally rewarding events you will experience.
How to start organizing:
1. Talk to co-workers you trust and determine who is interested in forming a union.
2. Determine how many people work for your employer by department and type of job.
3. Determine who the supervisors are.
4. Do NOT send out leaflets or call a meeting! Once management gets wind of interest in a union they will launch a union avoidance campaign.
