Your Rights at Work

Union membership provides working people a voice on the job, a means for protecting their retirement security and the power to improve the quality of life in their communities. State and federal labor laws uphold fundamental rights to assembly and association, as well as collective bargaining agreements with employers. Together they serve as a shield against exploitation, abuse and discrimination. They empower everything from resolving minor workplace disputes, to receiving legal representation in disciplinary hearings to advocating for stronger safety protocols on the job.
