ORGANIZING MISSION STATEMENT

IF IT IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR US TO HAVE A UNION!
WE WILL HELP THOSE WHO WANT TO HAVE A UNION!

In the last fifteen years organizing in the U.S. has drastically declined. The organized work force has dropped from 30% to 15%. Meanwhile, in Canada, union strength increases and over 40% of the work force is organized. In other industrial countries the percentage is even higher. (This demonstrates that technology and a service-based economy are not responsible for the decline of unionization in the U.S) Union members must realize the connection between organizing and their families’ well being if we are to reverse this trend. Organizing can’t be viewed as a separate activity, but as a key link increasing the power of working men and women and their families.
