There’s strength in numbers. And with that strength, comes a say on important issues in the workplace.
One of those issues is your pay. It’s a plain, simple fact – union members earn more money. Which is why the company continues to try and distract you by talking about things such as union dues. They recently filled the break room with diapers, baby clothes and signs saying $800 a year. Yes – diapers, baby clothes and other necessities are expensive. Which is why I can’t imagine anybody making these purchases without wondering what it would be like if, after putting in a long week of work, they made just a little more money.
The truth is: Workers pay a different type of dues by not having a contract. As workers, we all want to continue the success at BSC, but at what cost. We pay every day going to work in a place with inconsistent work rules. We pay every day from not knowing what tomorrow will bring. And we pay by not knowing how much is left on the table when it comes to wages and benefits.
The company’s anti-union slogan is, “Protect what we built together.“ You can bet they want to protect what they have at BSC as much as possible. In case you missed it, just some of what they have to “protect”:

We have this one chance, one opportunity to say “WE DESERVE BETTER.” Don’t let it slip by.
