Why we need a union.
Updated On: Aug 02, 2011

Why we NEED a union


Look at what you make per hour at HART. Now add in the cost of your benefits (fully paid health insurance,(NO PREMIUM DEDUCTION) sick days, vacation days, life insurance, short term disability, catastrophic sick pay and Florida retirement pension plan) This was all negotiated by your union.
Ask your friends what they make? What benefits they have?
This was all made possible by the union negotiating your contract.
Now ask yourself where would we be if there was not a union? No contract? No work rules? Who would you beg to get your raise, time off, vacation etc.
What would we be making?  Would we have any of the benefits listed above? And being that this is a right to work state you could get fired for anything and there would be nothing you could do about it. (sucks)
But thanks to your union you have safeguards in place to see to it that doesn't happen.
This is the main reason to join the union.  The only funding the union gets are member dues. 
Be thankful for what you have.  Give back by joining.  It costs less than a cup of coffee a day (a small price) plus you can visit this cool website!
As with any group there are naysayer's, armchair quarterback's etc... That is why we have this website to dispel that crap.
We have no initiation fees and compared to across the country we have negotiated one of the best contracts out there.
In Solidarity,
