What USWU Can Offer You


You work hard during the week so you can play hard on the weekends. But, how secure is your future? Are you at risk of being treated unfairly or even fired unjustly from your job? 

How about your benefits? Do you have any guarantees that you will receive or continue to receive benefits to provide for your needs and those of your family? Do you have any guarantees from your boss?  

And, if promises have been made to you, do you have them in writing?

Your auto loan is a contract;

Your auto insurance is a contract;

Your mortgage is a contract;

Your life insurance is a contract;

Your child’s student loan is a contract;

All of your utilities are governed by a contract;

Your apartment is governed by a contract;


But what pays for all of this?

Your Job!

Your job is your livelihood. If you are not in a union, it’s the one thing that is not guaranteed by a contract!

A Union contract is the only thing that can protect you from your employer changing your benefits, wages, or other terms of employment.


…are the most important things in my life; membership in United Service Workers Union, IUJAT (USWU) protects both.”

You work hard to provide the best for you and your family. But in today’s economy, doing a good job isn’t always enough. 

When working under a USWU contract, all conditions of employment are clearly laid out. These contracts are legally binding and protect your job, wages, and benefits. And like any legal contract, you have a written guarantee that is enforceable in a court
of law. 

USWU represents over 30,000 workers like you. They have respect and fairness on the job. They have excellent working conditions and professional representation. They have top-notch medical, dental, vision, and retirement benefits. 

Don’t you want the same for yourself and your family? 



USWU members enjoy wages and benefits that surpass all industry standards. Salary surveys demonstrate that union workers earn substantially more than their non-union peers (up to 30% more). And, with the experience of USWU’s representatives you are sure to make impressive gains at the negotiating table.


Membership in USWU can provide you with numerous additional benefits that will protect you and your family and enhance the quality of your life:

USWU members are guaranteed to have a say about their working conditions.


Are you always treated with the respect you deserve? Can you afford to be at the whim of your manager? If you answered “no” to any of these questions, a contract with USWU can improve your position. We can negotiate contracts that ensure fairness on the job. 


A union contract will defend you against unfair layoffs or discharges. USWU will be there to represent your interests in any situation in which your contract is being violated. This gives you the security of  knowing that your job is protected. 


Your representative will be available to you whenever you have questions or need a spokesperson for your rights. USWU has the strength, experience, and respect to provide you with the best contract possible.


A union contract will provide  you with a forum in which you can dispute company practices that adversely affect your job.
