Union dues are regular payments made by members of unions. Dues are the cost of membership. They are used to fund the various activities which the union engages in.
Hartford HealthCare has virtually unlimited resources. They are choosing to use those funds to prevent their employees from having a meaningful, legally enforceable voice at work. That’s why union dues are important.
Having your own, independent resources is key to combating Hartford HealthCare’s attack on your wages, your safety, and your rights.
Pooling your resources will better enable the union to negotiate contracts for better wages, benefits, and working conditions.
You are at the mercy of Hartford HealthCare if you don’t act collectively, and that includes paying dues so you can fight for what you deserve collectively.
