Our union is more than just an organization that files grievances against bad bosses. We mean it when we say “Community First” – and it starts with member involvement in our caucuses and committees. Our Social Economic Justice Committee (SEJ) engages in social, political and civil rights issues, and works to create a more just society for future generations.
Join one of our Caucuses, Committees and Industry Councils to help out your union and the community!
