"To me it's so important to have fairness and equality in the workplace. If it wasn't for the union we wouldn't have the benefits that we have today, including bereavement leave, sick time, vacation time and double pay when working the holidays."

Luther Starks, Local 0741
Green Bay Packaging, Maryland

"I wanted to make a difference in trying to create a better working environment. I know there's strength in numbers."

Bill Kelly, USW Local 12517

"I work union because it's better pay and benefits than non-union. It also helps raise wages for all workers in my area."
