More than half of U.S. workers - nearly 60 million - say they would join a union today if they could.

America's working people are struggling to make ends meet and our middle class is disappearing. The best opportunity for working men and women to get ahead economically is by uniting with co-workers to bargain with their employers for better wages and benefits.

On average, workers who belong to unions earn $186 more per week than nonunion workers. 96 percent of union workers have employer-provided health insurance compared to just 69% of nonunion workers. 54 percent of union workers are guaranteed an employer-provided pension plan while just 8 percent of nonunion workers have a similar secure retirement. Forming a union gives you the opportunity to recieve good wages and working conditions, dignity, and respect on the job.
