Why Join A Union?
Updated On: Jan 31, 2014

Most employers try to talk workers out of organizing. Why? Because employers know that, with a union, workers gain the power to make themselves heard. And employers must listen.

That is exactly what having a union is all about — having the power to stand up for ourselves, our families, our future. Having a union means having a strong, collective voice to stand up to our employer to gain decent working conditions, pay, benefits, dignity and respect on the job.

In fact, the only way to gain a voice on our job and gain real, positive changes in the workplace, is to get them in writing in a legally binding Teamster contract.

It makes sense. When we stand alone we are powerless. Our employer holds all the cards and he calls all the shots. By standing together, workers gain a seat at the table to demand a fair deal.

The Teamsters Union is made up of more than 1.4 million working men and women just like you. We are truck drivers, nurses, police officers, school employees, food workers, airline employees, manufacturing workers, production workers, linen workers, and much more.

We believe that talk is cheap, and false company promises cannot protect our families. We understand that the only way working people can truly protect their jobs and their families is by standing together and negotiating a legally binding union contract.

Had enough of broken promises? Tired of lousy pay and working conditions?

Do you want respect on the job and security for your family?

You'll be glad you did.
