Unions are Good for America and all Americans.
Unions are associated with higher productivity, lower employee turnover, improved workplace communication, and a better-trained workforce.
There is a substantial amount of academic literature on the following benefits of unions and unionization to employers and the economy:
- Economic growth
- Product or service delivery and quality
- Solvency of the firm
- Workplace health and safety
- Economic development
Anyone can join Working America and in solidarity with working people across the country, fight for our common interests – good jobs, affordable health care, education, retirement security, corporate accountability and real democracy. With unions, more low-wage workers can get out of poverty and there’s a stronger middle class.
