Become a Union Member


Advantages of Being a Union Member


You work hard at your job to provide the best for yourself and your family.  But in today’s economy, doing a good job isn’t always enough.

When working under a union contract, all conditions of employment are clearly laid out. These contracts are legally binding and protect your job, wages, and benefits.  And like any legal contract, you have a written guarantee that is enforceable in a court of law.

IUJAT represents workers like you in a diversity of occupations and industries across the nation. What do they have in common? They all have respect and fairness on the job. They receive fair wages, enjoy excellent working conditions, and have professional representation.  They have top-notch medical, dental, vision, and retirement benefits. Don’t you deserve the same for yourself and your family?
