Benefits of joining a union

A Voice In The Work Place

A Contract With Guaranteed Benefits  

Job  Security

Seniority Provisions

Better Wages

Equal Pay for Equal Work

That’s the bottom line in the world of work and union members make a lot more money than non-union employees, U.S. government figures show. Union members earn 28% more than non-union workers in wages alone, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. (If you include the value of benefits, it’s 36% more!)

People in lower paying jobs gain even more from union bargaining power. Paychecks for women with a union contract are 30% higher than for women without a union. African-American union members make 37% more than their non-union counterparts. For Hispanic union members, wages are 55% higher!

So that’s the bottom line – joining the IAM puts thousands more dollars into your pocket, year after year.

It’s a no brainer, joining the IAM is one of the smartest financial moves you can make for yourself and your family.
