Your Voice at Work

It is your right to pursue opportunity, a voice on the job and a better way of life by forming or joining a union. The decision to join a union is yours alone, and that decision should always be the free choice of an employee, without employer coercion or interference. 

As a union member, you have the right to vote on your contract and who will represent you at the bargaining table. As a union member, you also have the right to vote on union business. You can elect union officials and ratify the collective bargaining agreement. You also have the peace of mind that comes from knowing your union has your back and will represent you at work.

SMART has a long history of not only successfully helping workers form a union at work but representing you as well.
