Earn 11.2% More
On average, a worker covered by a union contract earns 11.2% more in wages than a peer with similar education, occupation, and experience in a non-unionized workplace in the same industry.
More than nine in 10 workers covered by a union contract (94%) have access to employer-sponsored health benefits, compared with just 68% of non-union workers.
Training & Equipment
When labor costs more, employers invest more in training and equipment, which improves workplace morale and boosts productivity. When workers are taken care of, everyone benefits.
More than half (54.7%) of workers covered by a union contract have an associate degree or more education. More than two out of five (43.1%) have a bachelor’s degree or more education.
