A Union to Get Respect
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 non-unionized 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.
