Higher union membership strengthens our position at both statewide and local bargaining tables. More members mean a better contract and less chance of a strike.
Union dues are your fair share of funds to process grievances. By joining the union, you help keep these funds available for the time when you or a colleague needs grievance support. The union provides this support whether you join or not.
Joining the union allows you to vote for officers and to be a candidate for an officership.
More members for our Local means greater voting strength at the State Council where major decisions are made
