This Week's Member Tip

A Difficult Balancing Act

You, as an individual, gain strength by uniting through the union with others in your workplace. Using your collective power you have greater strength to defend and promote your 2016.05.02 membertip balanceinterests, like higher pay and better benefits. For the good of the group, each individual gives up a bit of the ability to do whatever he or she pleases. Being a member of a union gets you the good things that come from being part of a group, but you have to give up a certain amount of individual control. (As you think about that, don't forget this: in a non-union workplace the employer makes all the rules.)
