WE ARE LIUNA
WHY JOIN THE LABORERS UNION?
As a worker, you have a RIGHT under federal law to form a union, select representatives of your choice and bargain collectively with your employer. This helps balance the power that an employer has over individual employees. Belonging to a union gives you rights under LAW that you do not have as an individual.
WHY IT PAYS TO BE UNION
Through collective bargaining, unions have helped raise the standard of living for millions of American workers. There is a distinct economic advantage in belonging to a union and working under a union contract – and particularly under an Laborers negotiated collective bargaining agreement.
