Key Reasons to Become an Active Union Member and Why Unions are Important:
Updated On: Jul 27, 2018

  • There is strength in numbers!  Employers are more likely to listen to a strong union group during negotiations, and that can translate to higher wage settlements, increased benefits etc.

  • You have a voice!  As a member, you are involved in the creation of your Union Contract through proposal meetings and voting.

  • Most union contracts provide greater protections than state and federal laws, and a union contract requires the Employer to bargain with Local 70 over wages, benefits, hours and working conditions.

  • IUOE Local 70 provides many services including: staffing and maintaining an office, grieving contract violations, providing legal assistance, communicating with membership, negotiating contracts, providing training, and contributing to the International Union.

  • There is a significant cost associated with providing the above services to over 5,000 people each year.

Do I have a choice to join or not? As of June 27, 2018, Public Sector workers have a choice to contribute to the Union or not.   However, without financial contributions from ALL members, it will be difficult for IUOE Local 70 to continue in our current capacity.  We ask that you consider how your job and life would change if the union was not available to handle grievances or negotiate wages, benefits, hours and working conditions.

If you have additional questions, please contact our office at 651-646-4566, or visit our website at www.iuoe70.org.
