Unions act as a collective voice for labour workers. The primary purpose of a union is to represent workers in their employment and to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement.
What you get from joining a union?
- higher wages
- quality working conditions
- protection from discrimination and unfair treatment.
By providing workers with a voice, unions help increase worker satisfaction and balance the power that an employer has over individual employees. As a worker, you have a federally guaranteed right to form or join a union, and bargain collectively with your employer.
