Time to Debunk a Myth
TIME TO DEBUNK A MYTH
Some Federal employees think that Union must represent them whether or not they are dues paying members.
THAT IS A BIG LIE!!
The law says the Union’s duty to represent a non-member is limited, and that the Union must only negotiate and administer collective bargaining agreements.
Comprehensive Union representation goes only to those who are Union members. Don’t get caught without Union protection when you need it most.
Joining the Union is not just a matter of adding your voice to the Union’s bargaining clout. It is a matter of survival. If you have trouble on the job and need representation at MSPB, OWCP, or EEOC, your legal bills could run into tens of thousands of dollars. If you are a LIUNA member, and we take your case, we will represent you for free. When everyone joins, everyone is protected!
