• Unions Make Us Stronger

    When workers stick together as a union they have bargaining power and a collective voice that they don't have when they aren't unionized, putting workers in a position to better their lives.

  • In the 1820s, various unions led the effort to reduce the working day from 12 to 10 hours. In 1898, the United Mine Workers won the eight hour work day.
