Labor Unions are the only institution that truly allows workers a meaningful democracy in the work place. What does that mean? A Union is the tool everyday wage earners use to gain freedom, opportunity, and security for their members and families. Being part of a Union allows for a respectful and equal relationship with your Employer to which both parties mutually have a long term interest in each others success. Without one we cannot have the other. A Union allows the workers to have a voice in the workplace to seek fair and reasonable work rules, the ability to respectfully solve problems and to collectively bargain over terms and conditions of employment.
