Join the Union!

Laws that help workers only go so far. Minimum wage, worker’s comp, overtime, and OSHA provide just the bare minimum of worker protections. For non-union workers, the bare minimum becomes a ceiling – employers don’t typically offer much beyond what the law requires of them. On the other hand, what sets Union workers apart, the bare minimum is only the beginning – there are always opportunities to bargain for rights and benefits above the bare minimum set by the law.

Being a part of the Local 881 Union provides our members a stronger voice, more protections, and helps improve their workplaces.

There’s a stereotype out there that union members are all older men who work in manufacturing or factories. This is partly because of the dated way the “working class” is often depicted in entertainment or the media. But the reality of who can join Union these days is as diverse as the workforce itself. Today, Local 881 members work in grocery stores, pharmacies, offices, health care, food production, retail, and customer service. They even sell cannabis!
