Why and How Unions Are Made : 

Why and How Unions Are Made Presented by: Miggy Gerard Ryan

Definition of Labor Union : 

Definition of Labor Union A trade union or labor union is an organization of workers who have banded together to achieve common goals in key areas such as wages, hours, and working conditions, forming a cartel of labor. The trade union, through its leadership, bargains with the employer on behalf of union members (rank and file members) and negotiates labor contracts with employers.

Why workers unionize : 

Why workers unionize Employees view unions as a way to voice their demands and get what they want Job dissatisfaction increases Low wage rate Less benefits Poor job security Poor environment

Why workers unionize : 

Why workers unionize Two conditions to consider to becoming a union: 1) employees have to be dissatisfied and believe that individually they are unable to influence a change in the conditions causing their dissatisfaction 2) a majority of employees have to believe collective bargaining would improve conditions more than changing jobs, and that its benefits would outweigh the costs

Steps in organizing a union : 

Steps in organizing a union Privately talk with co-workers This small group starts to privately discuss workplace issues, and what is involved in organizing a union

Steps in organizing a union : 

Steps in organizing a union Build an organizing committee Leaders are identified and an organizing committee representing all major departments and all shifts and reflecting the racial, ethnic and gender diversity in the workforce is established Information to be gathered: workplace structure: departments, work areas, jobs, shifts employee information: name, address, phone, shift, job title, and department for each worker (employee list) employer information: other locations, parent company, product(s), customers, union history

Steps in organizing a union : 

Steps in organizing a union Adopt an issues program The committee develops a program of union demands (the improvements you are organizing to achieve) and a strategy for the union election campaign

Steps in organizing a union : 

Steps in organizing a union Sign-up majority on union cards Your co-workers are asked to join and support the union program by signing membership cards The goal is to sign-up a sizable majority The signed cards are used (and required) to petition the state or federal labor board to hold an election

Steps in organizing a union : 

Steps in organizing a union Win the union election It will take the labor board at least several weeks to determine who is eligible to vote and schedule the election If the union wins, the employer must recognize and bargain with the union Winning a union election not only requires a strong, diverse organizing committee and a solid issues program, but there must also be a plan to fight the employer’s anti-union campaign

Steps in organizing a union : 

Steps in organizing a union Negotiate a contract The real goal of the campaign, a union contract (the document the union and the employer negotiate and sign, covering everything from wages to how disputes will be handled), is still to be achieved Workers must be mobilized to support the union’s contract demands (decided by you and your co-workers) and pressure the employer to meet them
