Why Workers Organize


Workers need the basics. Regular people have concerns for their family, their religion, and their health. Organized labour leaders speak with passion and conviction about these issues. They earn the trust of the common worker. People come to learn that the organization talks for them, demanding that the employment situation provide for their needs.

When their workplace situation becomes intolerable, workers tend to organize themselves into a unified force. They need to alleviate their anger at the ongoing mistreatment of themselves and their co-workers. They want to pull together and put their compassion into action in order to rectify past workplace injustice. They hope to provide for a better future in their lives. An organized workplace provides common bonds which draw workers closer together.

Here is a listing of the most common reasons people take steps to organize their workplace. We've divided the items into the following categories: freedom; a better deal; opportunity; a voice at the table; protection;
