Form a Union

Not represented by a union, but want to be…

Steps to forming a Union

When workers come together to form a union, you get the right to negotiate with your employer over wages, benefits and working conditions.

Regardless of the industry you are in, the process for forming a union is similar:

  1. Get together with your co-workers who may share a common interest in organizing a union
  2. Talk to a union organizer in order to learn the next steps
  3. Talk to your co-workers to build support for the unions
  4. Show that support through an election or a card-check once you have a strong majority

Once a union has been certified or recognized, the employer is required to bargain over your terms and conditions of employment with your union representative.
