You Have Rights

Don’t let management deny you your rights as an employee that are protected by Federal Labor Law. Here’s what you can do, and management legally cannot do: 


  1. CAN openly join, support and organize for the union.
  2. CAN distribute union literature.
  3. CAN wear union buttons, pins, badges and stickers.
  4. CAN sign union cards and petitions, take part in collective steps to improve your wages and working conditions.
  5. CAN exercise the right of speech. (If you are permitted to talk about community and social activities at work, you can talk about the union as long as it doesn’t interfere with the normal flow of work.)
  6. CAN attend union meetings.
