Work For Change

No person is perfect, and no society is perfect, either. But all of us are capable of becoming better people than we are today, and we all strive to do so. Similarly, no matter how 2015.11.23 membertip.changemessy things may sometimes appear to be in the larger society, we try to bring about improvements to make things better for all. And our unions are no different. Like the people we know or the society we live in, no union is perfect. But all are capable of improving. Unions are every working person's best defense against employer excesses, and they are the way our collective voice is heard. The union is you and your co-workers; you have it within your power to make your union an ever-more-effective fighter for workplace rights and justice.

—Adapted from The Union Member's Complete Guide, by Michael Mauer
