A union is essentially a tool that employees
can rely on to improve their working conditions
and to protect their rights.
Individually, employees would have great
difficulty achieving these goals. Collectively,
however, they stand a much better chance of
doing so. It has been proven that unionized
employees earn higher salaries than nonunionized
employees in identical jobs. It is
also a wellknown fact that unionized employees
enjoy a greater number of fringe benefits
(group insurance, retirement plan, sick leave,
etc.) that offer them better protection.
