With the backing of IAM we can work to ensure that our livelihood is secure and that we all make it home safely. It's not enough to just say "safety first". Safety comes from dedicating adequate resources, training and planning.
Wages and Benefits
All workers deserve to make a decent living that provides them and their families with stability, a living wage and a future. Union members don't beg, we bargain.
Workers need democracy and respect in the workplace. The legal rights that come with being a union member allow us to secure real respect in the workplace by having a say in the things that effect us and the quality of our home life, job security, working hours, rules, and regulations.
“At our hospital, we fought for a secure retirement, ensuring that our years of dedication to our patients receive proper compensation. As healthcare workers, we invest in the health and well-being of our patients day in and day out. It was imperative that we also invested in ourselves and our futures.”
