Why Unions are Good for Workers

Why Unions are Good for Workers

Businesses and organizations excel when they have their customers’ best interests in mind and provide them with an excellent experience.

The employees are the ones who make that possible. But who’s looking out for the employees’ best interest?

Since 1794, unions have played a crucial role in the American workforce in ensuring workers are paid a fair wage, treated respectfully, and protecting their rights.

In 2020, there were 7.2 million public-sector union employees and 7.1 million private-sector union employees.

The largest union in the country operates within the field of education. The National Education Association of the United States has more than 3 million members.

Unions serve every state. California is the eighth highest in terms of the percentage of union members

Academic Professionals of California continues the long tradition of unions by protecting Unit 4 employees within the CSU system.

Employees who provide academic support are vital to student success.

And APC brings the same dedication to its members that Unit 4 employees have for the students they assist every day.

When joining a union, you add to that union’s negotiating power,
giving your representatives more leverage to fight for your rights.

Being a member of APC means you have someone in your corner, negotiating contract benefits on your behalf.

Our job is to make sure you have a safe work environment, a manageable workload, and that your job is protected.

Academic Professionals of California. We are stronger together.
