Why support your Local883
What have unions ever done for working people like us? Plenty. A lot of what we have today, things we take for granted, is the result of working men and women joining together in unions to make America even more a land of opportunity. Here are just few things working people like us, working together in unions are working for and continue to work for.
- Protection from unfair terminations
- Safety and health protections on the job
- Fairness in promotions and job assignments
- Sick leave
- The 40 hour work a week
- The 8 hour a day
- Overtime pay
- Paid vacations and holidays
- Better health plans
- Higher wages
Then there’s the stuff you can’t put a price on dignity, respect, more opportunities for you and your family, and a real sea in what happens on the job. Unions have and will continue to make a big difference. With downsizing and mergers, Layoffs, changes in the economy and rising inequalities, working people like us need to join together now more than ever.
