The Costs of not Joining the Union
The cost to employees to remain non-union continues to climb.
Union workers are now making about 30% more than their non-union counterparts.

criteria, job protection, hours and other provisions that are guaranteed by a
Non-union workers are employees-at-will who have no guarantees
and can be fired without cause. Employers often try to avoid the issue of
non-union dues by claiming that the Union cannot guarantee you anything in
negotiations. The truth is, without a union contract, nothing you currently
have is guaranteed! In fact, because you are non-union the boss could lower
your pay or fire you tomorrow without having to show just cause.
