Why and how should I get involved in my Union?

Posted March 20, 2020

Our International, District Council and all our Local Unions were built by workers that banded together to fight for many, if not all, of the benefits, wages and working conditions we enjoy today.  Our strength and solidarity is the bedrock and voice to which we exist and grow from this very day. Our relevance into the future not only depends on being the best and most highly trained workforce, but also the most active in organizing, political action, accesses and opportunity for all in our communities to build a career as a Professional Finisher.  Check out our “Get Involved” tab for all current Volunteer Activist Committee activities and also your Local’s Union page for upcoming events in your Region.

You can get involved at every level of your career and your desire to make a difference in your Union.  Attend your Local’s Union meetings, participate in your Local’s contract ratification votes, become active in the Volunteer Activist Committee, participate in all your Local’s Unions sub-committees, contract and wage allocation votes, understand and exercise your voice, your vote at the ballot box to ensure labor friendly candidates and initiatives that set the laws and policy that affect and govern our livelihoods.
