Advantages to joining GCC/Teamster Local 100M
In today’s fragile economy, where downsizing and layoffs are a common occurrence, the union offers you the most valuable thing a working person can have –job security. Through your elected board of representatives, GCC/Teamster Local 100M makes this possible by:
- Negotiating a contract with your employer, which guarantees in writing your wages, hours, health and dental coverage, paid holidays, paid vacations and other working conditions.
- Enforcing the written contract by making sure that your employer lives up to his end of the agreement.
- Settling your grievances that can arise from time to time on the job.
- Organizing other workers in your industry in order to protect you and your employer from unfair competition.
- Holding meetings to keep you informed of the problems and achievement of fellow members in other plants.
Added up, the benefits and job security that come with joining a union clearly outweigh the cost of paying dues. It is the age-old story of how people banding together can secure benefits for each that not one could broker on their own.
