The decision to join UA Local 46, or any union, is an important one. Before you can make this decision, there are many questions to be answered and misconceptions cleared up. This section is designed to help you to make a well-informed decision concerning your future.
Over the centuries mankind learned that by teaming up with others, he could tackle any task with greater success. Thus, villages and towns were formed where people could provide a safer and more stable life for themselves, their families and communities.
Trade unionism is the same: a group of dedicated men and women striving toward the same goals provides security and dignity for all members while making important contributions to their communities.
Many voices can be louder than one voice. The United Association speaks collectively for its members, working to achieve job security, health and welfare benefits, a living wage, a safe working environment, and a comfortable pension.
When you join a union, you are joining a democracy. Each member has the opportunity to voice his concerns and suggestions, working for a better life for all.
As a United Association member, you may be working at your job on single family residences, apartments, commercial establishments, office buildings, hospitals, airports, shipyards, fabrication shops, shopping centers, offshore oil rigs, manufacturing plants, refineries, power houses, pipelines, utility plants and systems and/or any other site where work of the United Association is being performed.
