Union Guarantee

The IAM Hereby Guarantees:

That your wages and benefits will be improved before the Union will sign a contract with the company.

That you will not be expected to pay dues until a Union contract has been negotiated with the company, which is acceptable to a majority vote by secret ballot.

That you will not be required to pay an initiation fee (other unions may charge an extra fee).

That with your support, the Union can make your place of employment a more profitable, fair, and a more pleasant place to work.

That you cannot be fined for failure to attend Union meetings.

That the company is required to negotiate with the Union in good faith.

That the company is required to sign the Union contract once a contract has been ratified by a membership vote.

That a Union contract provides job security because the company will not be able to fire you without just cause.

That it is illegal for the company to discriminate against you because of your support for, or membership in, the Union.

That you are the “U” in Union. You will be entitled to attend Union meetings and have a voice and a vote in how your Union is run.
