This Week's Member Tip

More Than a Contract

When people think about the role that unions play, the first thing that comes to mind is negotiating over a contract.  These 2014.08.25membertip-contractcollective bargaining agreements deal with what are known as the “terms and conditions of employment.”  This is unionism at its core:  employees banding together to fight for more money, get decent health care and other benefits, and gain more control over many other areas of their day-to-day working lives.
