Why Union?

In Union There Is Strength!

         Rights5.jpg                                  Limited Rights Without a Union 

When workers decide to come together as one, they effectively give themselves a voice in the workplace - just like the boss has - through a guaranteed contract. Without a Union, your slice of the job rights pie is very small. The only rights you have are statutory rights such as minimum wage, overtime after 40 hours, OSHA requirements and unemployment insurance.

With a Union, workers retain their statutory rights and also enjoy numerous other slices of the job rights pie - guaranteed in the signed IBEW contract.

I am opposed to all unions.  Therefore, I am opposed to ALL benefits that unions have won through the years; 40-hour work-week, time-and-a-half for overtime, double-time on holidays, weekends, sick leave, child labor restrictions, wage increases, workplace safety standards, pensions, employer-paid insurance plans, unemployment benefits, job security, and legal representation for wrongful termination.

I hereby refuse to accept any benefits that have been or ever will be won by unions and also hereby authorize and direct the Company to withhold the amount of Union-won benefits from my paycheck.
