Union [yoon-yuh n]

: the state of being united

: a number of persons, states, etc., joined or associated together for some common purpose

: an organization of workers formed to protect the rights and interests of its members

I believe that we are all in this union. It’s not “they”, it is “us”.

I believe that even though we have different ideas and approaches, that we all share the same basic values. For this reason it’s imperative that we work together….for the good of all of us.

I believe that a union doesn’t need elected leaders – Rather, it needs elected representatives.

I believe that we should make compromises with our fellow members, not our employer.

I believe that simply because we can do a thing – does not mean that we should do a thing.
