As a dancer and member of a union, I have personally benefited from union victories ranging from overtime pay and paid sick days to employee healthcare and safer working environments. I am also afforded resources to aid in my career growth as well as support in the day to day demands of my job. My union has both my present and future needs in mind.
As we navigate these uncertain times, I find solace in knowing that the effects of collective bargaining can span across entire industries. It’s reassuring and reiterates that unions do make a difference.
