Union membership gives strength in numbers. All workers benefit from unions because unions set pay standards and workplace protections.
Union members — workers like you — benefit most from the union’s collective bargaining power to negotiate with employers on their behalf. This basic right gives you as a union member more power than if you tried to negotiate as an individual.
The main reason to join CWA is for higher pay, better benefits, and a voice on the job. As a Union Member, you have a collective voice regarding such things as pay and wages; work hours, benefits such as – retirement and pension plans, health insurance, vacation, sick leave, tuition reimbursement, workplace health and safety, and ways to balance work and family. To become a member, you must fill out this card.
By standing together with our Union, we are stronger and able to pool our resources to ensure workers are respected. CWA members have mobilized to win job security, quality affordable health care benefits, guaranteed pensions, and good wage increases.
The Union Difference
Union members work together to negotiate and enforce a contract with management that guarantees the things you care about like decent raises, affordable health care, job security, and a stable schedule.
