The value of collective voice
As the inequality gap between the very rich and very poor widens, unions today have become more important than ever for middle-class families. By promoting equal pay for equal work, unions help reduce inequalities and close the wage gaps faced by women and people of color.
Unions also help protect members’ rights and voices in the workplace, as well as the ability to advocate for those they serve.
