FOUR FACTS ABOUT THE BEENFITS SHOULD READ:
1. EARN MORE -- government statistics show that the average pay for union construction workers is more than 50% above that of non-union construction workers.
2. FREE EDUCATION -- LIUNA has one of the best continuing education systems in the world – and it’s free. Training helps me find more work and keeps me safer on the job.
3. HEALTHCARE AND PENSION -- There's healthcare and a pension – 82% of union construction workers have health insurance, compared to only 46% of non-union construction workers and 77% of union construction workers have a pension plan, compared to only 35% of non-union construction workers.
4. WE’RE BETTER OFF TOGETHER THAN GOING IT ALONE!
