For more than 120 years, unions have fought for workers’ rights and the benefits so often taken for granted. Benefits like sick pay, leaves of absence, bereavement leave, holidays, vacations, retirement security and healthcare.
Most people define the Middle Class as being able to start a family, provide a home, maybe take a vacation once in a while, and if illness visit you or your family it doesn’t take everything you have worked hard for away.
Having a good wage, bargained for paid vacation, paid maternity leave, paid ill pay are not guaranteed by any US Labor Law. The only way to ensure you work will help you weather life is to have a Union Contract.
In all “Employee Handbooks” without a Union; “ I recognize that my employment is “at will” meaning that I may resign or be terminated by the Company at any time, for any or no reason”
Under an IAM Contract, “just cause” under the grievance procedure is required.
