Joining together in union with your colleagues is the most effective way to improve your wages, benefits, and working conditions. A majority of professionals would support a proposal to have a union in their current workplace. If you are interested in joining a union, most of your colleagues probably are too.
Why a Union?
Over six million professional and technical employees across the United States have joined together with their colleagues to gain a written contract—just like CEOs have—that guarantees pay and benefits, gives them a voice in decisions that affect them at work, and cannot be changed without their approval.

Join a Union
If there is not a union in your workplace, you can start a union by talking to an organizer that works for a union that represents professionals. An organizer can answer your questions about forming a union and help get you started. You can contact one of our affiliate unions directly through their website and talk to one of their organizers. If you have not found a union that is right for you or would like to ask a question about forming a union, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you find a union that is right for you and your colleagues.
