Support Workers’ Right to Join a Union this Labor Day

August 29, 2008: Workers who want a union often face threats and harassment. Some even lose their jobs. This Labor Day, you can help level the playing field.

Today, when workers try to organize, employers are taking the gloves off and responding with anti-union lies, mandatory meetings, and sometimes firings. And when they break the law, they only get a slap on the wrist.

As Teamsters, we know how important it is to have a say over our wages, benefits, and working conditions. Having a voice on the job shouldn’t take an act of courage.

The Employee Free Choice Act would change that.

The proposed law would strengthen the penalties for employers who coerce or fire workers who are trying to get a voice on the job.

And the new law would make it easier for workers to join a union after a majority of them say they want to have one.

Do your part this Labor Day to support workers’ right to organize. Sign the petition and be a part of One Million Strong for the Employee Free Choice Act.
