We've done the research. We've seen the numbers. We've seen the evidence. And it's very clear: unions work. Pretty much everyone benefits when workers have a strong voice and can actively participate in collective bargaining.
So let's spread the word through Unions WORK, the new website AFSCME created to help you spread the word.
It's filled with clear and easy-to-understand graphics that make it clear that when unions are strong, the economy and the middle class do better and working families take home more money, even if they aren't union members themselves.
As AFSCME President Lee Saunders put it:
"Strong unions level the playing field and help create an economy that works for everyone," AFSCME President Lee Saunders explained. "When unions are strong, our nation's wealth is distributed more equally. And when union membership goes down, so does the middle class. This is what our new website is all about."
