Forming a union at Stella-Jones gives you and your coworkers the right to negotiate collectively with management for fair wages, living benefits, working conditions, and so much more. A union contract is a legally binding document that will end the at-will employment relationship and give you a STRONG voice on the job.
Stella Jones management is trying to stop you from joining a union. Why do you think that is? Maybe they want to keep your wages low, be able to fire you without just cause, and keep your benefits as cheap as possible? Or do they want to just use your hard work and labor and not give you a pathway to retire and enjoy time with your family without having to pick up a second job in what was supposed to be your retirement?
Stella Jones management says you have protections but an employee handbook is NOT legally binding protection. Any provision in the handbook is subject to change at will, at any moment, without notice, by your employer. Your protections in a union contract are LEGALLY binding and are guaranteed by law.
Why do we want you to join the union?
It is simple. We want you to have a better life for you and your family. IUOE has fought for over 100 years against the greedy bosses to make sure our members have a strong life at work and after work. Our motivation isn’t profits. It is you.
Joining a union is joining a brotherhood and a sisterhood for the rest of your life. We fight every single day to protect workers and Local 420 would be honored if you voted to join our strong union.
Voting is easy!
Protect your future. Join a union for a guaranteed better career and retirement. Vote YES!
