Labor unions are made up of people working together to solve problems, build stronger work places and give working families a real voice. Unions give workers a voice on the job about safety, security, pay, benefits and about the best ways to get the work done. Union workers earn 30 percent more each week than non-union workers and are much more likely to have health and pension benefits. Unions give working people a voice in government. They represent working families before lawmakers, and make sure politicians never forget that working families voted them into office.
