Why Organize a Union Where You Work?
Public employees, non-profit employees, and other Ohio workers providing public services want reasonable, consistent, and fairly enforced policies. Even more importantly, they want a voice in making those policies so that they can earn good wages, a secure retirement and affordable, high-quality health care benefits. Organizing a union is the best way to meet these goals. Contact AFSCME Ohio Council 8 to learn more about how to organize – this conversation will be completely confidential.
You Have a Legal Right to Join a Union
Your right to join a union is protected under the Constitution of the United States. In Ohio, Council 8 played an instrumental role in passing the state’s collective bargaining law which guarantees you the legal right to form a union and bargain collectively with your employer over pay, hours of work, and working conditions.
In America, your freedom of speech and freedom of association are guaranteed. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
