You have the Power

One Collective Voice

Building a strong movement begins with you! Workers joining together, building power right on the shop floor leads to a strong union! Workers United has a simple proposition: Joining together helps working people gain strength in numbers, gain a voice at work, and gain the power necessary to address the issues that are important to the workers themselves. The late U.S. Congressman John Robert Lewis said that the right to organize a union is the Civil Rights fight of the 21st Century.

The union, through the collective strength of its membership, can achieve through negotiations what one person cannot. 

Throughout North America, people are working harder and longer hours, in workplaces where employers are not treating them well or with respect, and in environments that are unsafe and unhealthy -- and all for less than living wages. Workers United has the power to negotiate a contract with your employer for a fair and safe workplace, better wages, a secure retirement, family friendly policies such as paid sick leave and scheduling hours, and equity for all. You can have a voice in how your job gets done, creating a more stable, productive workforce that provides better services and products.

Guided by our legacy, Workers United is your union of the future. We recognize our evolving workforce and we are committed to meeting the needs of all workers in today's flexible and non-traditional work environments.

At Workers United, the POWER starts with you. 

  • You have the POWER to join our forward-thinking, member-centric union

  • You have the POWER to form a union to demand recognition from your employer

  • You have the POWER to win a contract for better wages and benefits 

  • You have the POWER to stand up and fight for DIGNITY, EQUALITY, JUSTICE, EQUITY and RESPECT where you work
