Welcome to the Union Pamphlet
Don’t let management’s voice be the only one heard by new employees who hire on in your unionized workplace. Welcome them to the job with this easy-to-read, solidarity-building introduction to unionism.
It’s been well documented that most new employees simply don’t understand what unions are. All they know is what they think they know—and what the boss tells them when they’re hired. That’s a bad combination that adds up to uninformed, perhaps even union-hostile, co-workers.
Welcome to the Union helps new co-workers understand unionism and is designed to win their support and involvement. It offers a concise, to-the-point explanation of how unions operate and the vital role every employee can play to improve the workplace for all.
The 13 page pamphlet covers all the important bases, including explaining the democratic nature of unions, how collective bargaining works, member rights and responsibilities and just plain basic union structure. It even has a clip-and-save Weingarten Rights card. It’s a perfect ice-breaking handout from stewards or for inclusion in a new-worker membership package.
A blank back page allows room for you to add your own information: steward contacts, important phone numbers, union officer listings and the like.
