Our objective is to represent you in matters of equality, justice, fair labor practices and employee rights. If you feel you have been treated unfairly, you are welcome to contact the union for a confidential conversation. All communication is held in the strictest of confidence.

“I am a new employee and I was very impressed with the information about the Union at my new employee orientation. I decided to join the Union even though I didn’t really think I would actually “need” representation. To my surprise, I wasn’t treated fairly during my probation period and my Union Steward was totally supportive. I am glad I thought to seek the advice of my Union Steward. It feels good to know we, as employees, are protected!”

“I like that I can just call my Union Steward to simply ask questions to ensure that everything is as it should be and that my employee rights are being honored. 
Thank you, Local 548.”
