You work hard so that you can enjoy the best life possible. But how secure is your future? Are you at risk of being treated unfairly or even fired unjustly from your job? What 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?

Think about this:

  • 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 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 having your employer change your benefits, wages, or other terms of employment.


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

In today’s economy, doing a good job isn’t always enough. 

When you work 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.
