A Voice on the job
Only Union members enjoy the legal right and power to have a say on the job.
Management has exclusive control and decision making power.

Management alone decides what's fair pay and can base any raises on business needs, favouritism or anything else.
BenefitsProtected by the contract. Changes can only be made if approved by you.
If available at all, they can be reduced or taken away completely at any time.

You're on your own. Any grievance process gives management the last word.
Working Conditions

Management decides what's best for you.
Protection and Guarantees
