Organized! Make It Your Union!
In UE, we are proud of our democratic tradition: UE members run their own local unions — and there’s no other union where this is a truer statement. But you don’t “go it alone,” either. UE will be with you every step of the way — helping with everything from organizing to negotiating your first contract … and helping you learn how to build and run your own local union.
Will we still be there after you win your first contract? Absolutely! While we want and encourage our locals to make their own decisions on issues of local importance, the resources of the national union will always be there when you need them — along with a staff person to provide guidance and support. To find out more about how UE works as the “USA’s Rank-and-File Union”, check out our “About UE” section and especially our online pamphlet, UE Aims and Structure.
