Becoming a Member

You are the Union

In the Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers Local 36, you are the union.  You come  together with your co-workers; you nominate and elect union officers; you determine the working conditions and concerns that will be bargained in a contract; you will be part of a larger movement to improve the lives of working men and women in the workplace and in their communities.

On becoming a member, the more workers join together for the good of all, the more management listens to what they have to say.  In Unions there is strength.  Without a union you have only a few rights such as minimum wage, overtime after 40 hours and unemployment insurance.  With a union, you enjoy numerous other benefits guaranteed in a union contract, such as:

  1. Negotiated wages, health care and retirement plans
  2. Defined work schedules
  3. Grievance procedures
  4. Reasonable workload requirements
  5. Protection from unfair treatment and favoritism by the boss
  6. Job security and seniority rights
  7. And a voice on the job to bargain for other benefits
