Organizing 101: Forming a Union

A union is a group of workers who join together to achieve better wages, better benefits, respect on the job, and a stronger voice in workplace decisions. With the help of a union, workers negotiate a contract with their employer to ensure these things.

Without a union, employers have 100% control over its employees and complete authority to make all decisions. Through unions employees take some of this control to make their workplace better. A union's major goal is to give workers a voice on the job for respect, safety, security, better pay and benefits, and other improvements to working conditions.

If you would like more information about organizing a union, please contact Chad Brooks, our Director of Organizing at cbrooks@ufcwlocal152.org. Alternatively, you can fill out the 100% confidential Union Interest Form.
