ORGANIZING

Having a union means that you can collectively meet and negotiate, through your union representative, issues that affect you and your job, including wages, benefits and working conditions. A union contract is a legally binding document where these agreements are put in writing. Having a union gives you a stronger voice in the work place.

HERE IS THE LAW

Your rights under the National Labor Relations Board.

Employees shall have the right to self-organize to form, join or assist labor organizations, to obtain collectively through representation of their own choosing, and to engage in other concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or protection…..

What this means

Employees have the legal right to help organize, to join and support a union of their own choosing. This includes such activities as signing a union card, getting others to sign cards, attending union meetings, wearing union buttons, passing out union literature and talking union to other employees.

HERE IS THE LAW

Your protection under the National Labor Relations Board

It shall be an unfair labor practice for an employer to interfere with, restrain or coerce employees in the exercise of their rights.

What this means

Employees are supposed to have a FREE CHOICE in deciding whether or not they want to use their right to organize. Anything that an employer does to interfere with this free choice is against the law.
