WHAT DOES THE UNION DO FOR YOU?
The UNION is your voice in your work place.
The UNION negotiates the best possible wage and benefits for ALL it's members.
The UNION protects it members by offering safety training for it's members.
Working union means working with respect and power.
Union dues are the best investment you'll ever make.
For every .80¢ you invest in union dues ( check-off dues and monthly dues), you get about $28.00 an hour in wages and benefits.
That return grows even faster when you consider the value of union-negotiated benefits.
There is evidence from the U.S. government on the dollar value of having a union.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that total compensation for unionized workers in private industry averages $24.75 compared to $18.20 for non-union workers.
That's a $6.55 an hour advantage for the union worker.
Much of the union advantage comes from superior benefits.
Union health insurance is over twice as good as non-union insurance.
Our Union Health insurance in most cases does not exclude for preexisting conditions.
Union pensions are better-as a result of negotiations, employers pay almost three times as much for union pensions as non-union retirement plans.
Union pension plans, like ours, are the safest in the world because Labor and Management work together to keep the funds safe and secure for the participants.
But the best part of being in a union can't be measured in dollars and cents.
It is the respect-and power-that comes from solidarity.
The average union member makes $2.67 an hour more than the non-union worker.
The average union member makes $3.87 an hour more in benefits. That means better pensions, better health insurance, a better quality of life.
WORK BETTER, WORK UNION!
