Labor Day 2022
We know what our union means to us. We have power on the job, and that means we earn a fair share for the work we do. Unions also mean exercising our personal freedoms—to be who we are inside and outside the workplace. From making sure we have the health care we need to protecting our reproductive freedom, unions are key to the prosperity of working families.
The good news is that nonunion workers are learning these lessons, too. In the first half of this year, the National Labor Relations Board saw a 69% jump in the number of petitions filed by workers to exercise our freedom to come together in unions and negotiate for a fair return on our work.
