Greedy corporations across this country—from airlines, to major retailers, to tech giants—are reaping record profits, while middle class wages are stagnant. It’s time to change the rules and fix an economy that’s out of balance. That’s where unions come in. A voice on the job and a union contract is still the best line of defense against employers denying you pay and benefits for the work you do. The TWU organizes to help represent our members at the bargaining table, to gain power in the workplace, and to help the union family grow. We believe that all working people should be treated with dignity and respect on the job.
U.S. Department of Labor statistics make it clear: across the board, union workers make more money than workers without union representation. In states with higher union density, the wage gap is smaller, as is the gap between the rich and the poor. For women and people of color, the difference is even more striking.
Unions will always be one of the last, best checks on corporate power, and one of the strongest ways to open a pathway toward a family-sustaining career and a better life overall. We all deserve a voice: In our communities. At home. In our families. At school. In our places of worship. At work.
Want a voice on the job? Then join a union.
