Job Protection

Members have the full power of the Union to represent, protect, and defend them in any discipline, grievance, arbitration, or other matter that may occur in the workplace. Non-members do not receive representation in any matter other than grievances. Hiring a private attorney — in the simplest of matters — can cost a minimum of $1,500 to $2,000. In complicated cases, attorney fees can run to $10,000 or more per case.

Only members can offer proposals for negotiations for new contracts. Only members can vote on the ratification of any new contract. Only members have a say, a vote on what is happening to you in your workplace, on your salaries, on your working conditions, on your benefits. Non-members don’t have any of these rights.
