Get the union advantage at your casino: sign the card
Welcome to UAW! When a majority of us have signed cards choosing UAW as our Union, we will seek official recognition through a fair process to verify our majority support so we can start bargaining. This could happen through a voluntary process or through a neutral party such as the National Labor Relations Board.
Collective bargaining means more rights and more power to shape our lives. Collectively we have more power to negotiate than we have as individuals. No one will pay any dues or fees until gaming employees have democratically approved a contract.
Without a union:
- The Casino unilaterally determines our working conditions and can change them at any time without our consent.
With a union:
- The bargaining committee gathers input from Union member employees across the Casino.
- That bargaining committee negotiates a contract on equal footing with the Casino.
- That contract can only be approved democratically, through a simple majority Union member employee vote.
- That contract determines our terms and conditions of employment and is binding and enforceable, usually through appeal to a neutral mediator/ arbitrator and/or the NLRB (National Labor Relations Board).
Signing this union card is a commitment to your co-workers that you are ready to stand with us and form our union. It’s the beginning of the process, not the end. Once you sign a card, the next step is to educate yourself about what it takes to win so that you can start talking to your co-workers and getting them involved, too. An organizer or a member of the worker-led organizing committee will get in touch with you after you sign the card to discuss next steps.
