COMPANY is pro-associate, which means that we have confidence in, and respect for the dignity and individuality of each our associates. We believe in solving issues and concerns by working together and creating a climate where union representation isn’t needed to resolve issues. We believe that no union would improve anything for our associates, customers, or the Company.
A strong, direct relationship between managers and associates is our competitive advantage in a tough INDUSTRY environment. It enables us to quickly and positively resolve challenges together, rather than through a 3rd party. It reduces conflict between management and associates.
Unions create a “wedge” between you and management. A direct relationship provides a better work environment for associates and it’s a better deal (you don’t have to pay dues, fees, or follow restrictive union rules and regulations).
It is important for associates to understand that an authorization card is a legal document stating that you want the union to speak for you. But a union card provides no guarantee of any improvement in wages, benefits or work conditions. You pay dues (an average of more than $500 per year) even if the union fails to deliver. Plus there is the risk of other fees or assessments. And you must follow union rules or be subject to discipline.
Finally, remember that no union can guarantee job security. Only great sales help make our jobs more secure. What is the union doing to drive sales and customer service?
Remember: You have a legal right to NOT sign a card.
