You deserve to make more than just a decent living, you deserve a decent life.
Everyone knows—family comes first. Whether it’s being able send your kids off for their first day of school, or caring for an elderly parent who is ill, being there and providing for family isn’t negotiable.
There’s more to life than work. Which is why people join unions to negotiate together for work-life balance. Union members speak up together to make life better through:
Consistent schedules and no mandatory overtime.
Flexible schedules, like a four day work week or working from home.
Time off to take care of family or attend school events.
Paid vacation you can actually take without feeling guilty or overwhelmed when you return.
Longer maternity leave and paternity leave, with staffing to back-fill your position while you’re out.
Student loan repayment and scholarships.
Job training programs for career mobility.
Wages and benefits that keep up with the cost of living.
Family-friendly work environments.
A voice on the job is priceless. You deserve respect and recognition for the hard work you do.
