Why are there Unions? Without a union, we have little power on the job. Think about it. The voice of one worker can be ignored but the collective voice of all the workers is not so easily dismissed. The Supreme Court said as much in 1937 when it ruled that it was legal for workers to form unions because:
“…a single employee [is] helpless in dealing with an employer; he [is] dependent ordinarily on his daily wage for the maintenance for himself and his family; that if the employer refuses to pay him the wages he thought fair, he [is] nevertheless unable to leave the employ and resist arbitrary and unfair treatment; that a union [is] essential to give laborers [an] opportunity to deal on an equal level with their employer.“ (NLRB v. Jones & Laughlin Steel Corp, 1937)
In today’s complex world, individuals join together to increase their effectiveness. Business persons join associations like the National Alliance of Business, doctors join groups like the American Medical Association. And unions are made up of workers who join together for their mutual benefit, like NTEU.
