How to Join

Interested in forming a union at your workplace, or simply have questions about it? The first step is to contact an 1199 organizer today and start telling them your story. We’d love to hear about what you think could be improved in your department—whether it’s wages, respect on the job, staffing or anything else.

Once you are working to form a union at your workplace, the first step toward building strength is to form a committee that takes responsibility for informing co-workers and building union support. The next step is to sign cards showing that workers want to form a union and ask that an election be held. If a majority of workers vote for 1199, then workers start negotiations with management for better pay, job security and other improvements!
