“When I was working in a corporate setting, the term at-will employment always made me nervous. Unions protect employees from unfair treatment by fighting on your behalf for a wrongful termination or discrimination. If you are a member of a union, your employer must have just cause. This can make you feel more secure and protected from the idea that you could be let go for any or no reason.

Unions are a great thing for employees. With a union, you are able to utilize collective bargaining. This process allows unionized workers to secure higher wages and better benefits, like pensions. If you have the opportunity to join a union, I recommend you learn more and get ready to join.”
