Unions play a vital role in the workplace by creating a mechanism for employees to formally have a say over their pay, benefits, and working conditions.

If you’ve never been in a union, chances are the concept is pretty foreign. Unions play a vital role in the workplace by creating a mechanism for employees to formally have a say over their pay, benefits, and working conditions. And the benefits of workers’ collective bargaining extend far beyond themselves – and their workplace. Even non-union employees enjoy higher standards in industries or geographic regions where union representation is high. Union members are contributing innovative ideas and critical resources with positive outcomes for communities, consumers, employers, and employees, whether through funding development projects that produce good jobs, operating effective training programs, or controlling health care costs.
