The amount of membership in labor unions has never been lower in the private sector workforce than it is lately, but workers throughout the United States are showing a new interest in labor organizing in order to discover the advantages of collective bargaining and union complaint processes.
While federal and state regulations provide valuable tools for safeguarding workplace rights, a union contract normally represents even stronger protection against low wages, long hours and illegal treatment on the job. Businesses, for example, cannot impose a substitute workweek schedule without a two-thirds majority vote, correctly conducted, of the workers who will be affected.

Did you know?
For some things, you don't even need an operating union to have collective rights while on the job.
For instance, if the company proposes a shift to a 10-hour, four-day week, the workers have the prerogative to vote on it whether or not you are receiving representation from the union.
