What Does Organizing Mean?
Organizing individuals, employers, or industries is the process of becoming a Union member. All it takes is the support of your co-workers, and with the proper representation, you and everyone around you can begin to benefit through improved working conditions, decent wages, and respectable benefits.
In 2003, LiUNA established an organizing coalition with more than 200 Organizers working to enlist a new generation of Laborers and fight to win back our markets. As strong as we are, we are at the crossroads where everyone, every member and every leader will determine our future. Hundreds of organizers will not be enough. If you already have the privilege of being a Laborer, help other workers try to attain the same privileges If you’re not yet a member of this great international union, contact our organizing department and join us.
How you can take action in support of organizing:
- Volunteer at least three days a year for your union. Contact your local Union to find out how
- Support your Union brothers and sisters whether Laborers or members of other Unions are on a picket line, rally or other event
- Participate in get-out-to-vote efforts. Contact your local Union or district council to find out where you can help the most
Its important to support your local Union and help to increase our market share. Any person that you come in contact with that would like to know about the benefits of a Union or a company that you are working with or know of, have them contact the Organizing department or tell them of all the ways Local 341 can help them as well as the contractor with Union Laborers.
