You Deserve More Money

Have you ever been promised a promotion or a raise by your boss, only to have it fall through later? There are plenty of times when employers or managers don’t come through on a promise they made and you’re left trying to figure out how to adapt. Whatever the reason your manager tells you no, in the end it often feels like there’s not much you can do about it but hope for better luck next time.

You don’t need to rely on luck. And you don’t have to go it alone.

In 2019, the average union retail worker made over $2300 more than a nonunion retail worker.*

That's 2,300 more advantages that a union job can give you versus a nonunion job.

"In 2017, my coworkers and I organized a union at Seward Community Co-op. After years of individually asking for better pay, reliable scheduling, and a consistent and fair disciplinary procedure to no avail, we decided to band together as United Food and Commercial Workers Local 663 and bargain for our first contract.

We achieved a lot of progress in our contract, including guaranteed minimum pay raises with respect to years of service, which helped to fix pay disparities. All this was possible by getting to know our coworkers and uniting together, and it's a good feeling to know we have each other's backs."
-Keith Hanson, Seward Community Co-op, Minneapolis, Minnesota
