A union is a democratic organization of employees in a workplace who choose to join together to achieve common goals. By forming unions, employees can work collectively to improve working conditions, including wages and benefits, hours and job safety, to resolve disagreements of employees and employers and to find the best ways to get the work done. Unions also represent members and all people who work by advocating working family-friendly laws and policies through legislative and political action. Most people who work in this country have the right to form and join unions under the 1935 National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), which encourages union formation.
Our Mission Statement:
Union Guy is focused on providing you with the most comprehensive listing of labor unions and on being your trusted source for labor union referral services. (more)
What We Do:
As you may know, there are a lot of labor unions and many have the authority to provide representation for workers within a variety of professions. And, it's likely that, if you were to walk into the office of most of these labor unions, each would readily assist you and your coworkers with joining their union. The problem with this scenario is that it can be compared to walking onto the sales lots of several vehicle dealerships; regardless of which sales lot a potential customer is on, salespeople from each lot will explain to him/her that a vehicle on 'this lot' is 'the best' vehicle for them. But clearly not all vehicles can be the best vehicle for a customer. While all labor unions may be good 'vehicles' for workers to get them to where want to be, some may be more effective in some circumstances than in others. So how, then, can a worker searching for the 'right' labor union, know when (s)he has found it? -By coming to UnionGuy.org.
We take into consideration many factors such as: individual labor unions' experience providing representation for workers within the profession(s) of the interested workers, labor union membership density by profession, individual labor organizations' representation 'track record', geographic location of the prospective union members, geographic location of the company, type of business involved, and more. Finally, we are then able to provide our recommendation -custom made exclusively for you and your coworkers.
In order for us to provide you with the best referral, we ask that you include certain information with your inquiry. This information includes your name (first and last), your address, your phone number, the name of the company for which you work, the city and state where the company for which you work is located, and a description of the type of work you perform. Rest assured that any and all information you provide will remain strictly confidential and only shared with the labor union to which you are referred. Union Guy is your trusted labor connection.
