Unions are about workers coming together to have a voice on the job. You set the priorities and improvements you want to see made at work, we help you make them happen. Together, we can raise the standards at your workplace and make what you like about your job even better.

Securing what you have today into a legally binding contract ensures that what you like about your job stays that way even if there is a change of management and even ownership. Belonging to a union also creates a support network: Stewards, union representatives, negotiators and lawyers will be there to ensure your fair treatment at work, always.
Workers wanting to form a union have legal rights and protections under the National Labor Relations Act. Because Climate Pledge management has committed to respect the right of their employees to form a union, you and your co-workers have the huge advantage of following a fair and simple process known as “card check” to become unionized. Through this process, a union is automatically approved after a majority of workers sign cards saying they want a union. Signing a card is easy and confidential, you can even do it online here. Whether you are ready to sign a card or not, we encourage you to get in touch to strategize and talk about next steps with a union organizer.
Absolutely. The National Labor Relations Act protects the rights of employees to form a union. It is ilegal to fire, threaten or discriminate against a worker for their support of a union. What is more, Climate Pledge management has a relationship with a number of Seattle-area unions. They have committed to respect the legal right of their employees to unionize if they choose to do so.
There is no cost to join until you vote in your first collective agreement. Once you start benefiting from your new contract, your dues will be no more than a small percentage of your earnings. Due rates vary per job and union – we encourage you to get in touch with us to find out more about your specific union dues rate. Since unions are non-profit organizations, you can be sure everything you invest in your union is spent back in union members. The voice at work, rights and benefits that come with unionization are well worth the small cost associated with joining!
