You get a voice on the job
Your Union negotiates collective bargaining agreements with management covering important personnel policies such as performance appraisals, health and safety, leave, work schedules and much more.
You get a voice in workplace changes
Your Union also negotiates with management over changes in working conditions, including reorganizations, office/shop moves or new personnel policies. When you're part of the Union management has to take your views into account.
You get representation with workplace issues
AFGE Local 476 trains employee shop stewards to represent their co-workers. These individuals are supported by experienced staff representatives and union attorneys, who also represent individual employees at the higher levels of appeals processes. All union contracts contain a grievance procedure that ends in binding arbitration by an outside, neutral party.
