Standing Together Since 1948


We all do!

Unions create a fair playing field in the workplace. When workers stand together, they bargain for better pay, benefits and working conditions.

Unions raise the standard of living for all workers. By standing together, working peoples created the 40-hour work week, 8-hour work day, paid vacations, and fair compensation.

Unions helped to create:

      • Family and Medical Leave Act
      • Pregnancy and Parental Bonding Leave
      • The right to work during pregnancy
      • Sick leave
      • Duty Free Lunch
      • Minimum Wage
      • Overtime and Holiday Pay
      • Privacy Rights
      • Occupational Safety and Health Act
      • Workers Compensation
      • Unemployment Insurance
      • Wrongful Termination Laws
      • Sexual Harassment Laws
      • Americans with Disabilities Act
