Electrolux employee Joe Barrata said “I’m glad that we have this opportunity to better our lives as our employer closes down. This program will hopefully set us all up to keep or improve our livelihoods for the future. Working with a union sponsored program to keep us in good, union jobs is a very reassuring feeling.”
Workers are organizing through unions and other organizations to improve their lives. Union representation provides a voice on the job and the opportunity to improve wages, benefits and working conditions.
