UWUA Labor Contract Campaigns And International Solidarity

UWUA Labor Contract Campaigns

The assault by corporate bullies and anti-union politicians on working families’ standard of living escalates each passing year, but the UWUA has always risen to the challenge. The UWUA National Union continues to expand our ability to wage comprehensive campaigns, not only to defend members’ existing contracts and hard-won working conditions, but also to get solid first contracts for new members after UWUA organizing victories.

Global Partners

In many of UWUA’s strategic campaigns against corporate bullies, the UWUA partners with the IndustriALL and PSI union federations – especially in cases where our corporate adversaries conduct business internationally. The UWUA belongs to both global federations, which unite similar unions together to advance workers’ interests worldwide.

Whenever the UWUA confronts abusive corporate behavior at the global level, IndustriALL and PSI have extended crucial international solidarity for embattled UWUA members. At the same time, the UWUA is recognized around the globe as a union that routinely stands with union workers internationally to confront corporate attacks against working families on every continent.

What Management Cannot Do In an Organizing Campaign

Did you know that Management cannot promise benefits to employees if they reject the union? Read this and much more in the “Do You Know” flyer. Should you or a coworker witness one of these infractions please contact your union representative.

How Unions Help Union and Non-Union Workers

According to a study done by the Economic Policy Institute, “Unions have a substantial impact on the compensation and work lives of both unionized and non-unionized workers.” See the full report here: How Unions Help All Workers.
