What Goes In A Contract?
There are many details incorporated into a labor-management agreement including:
Securing Union Pay
Union contracts provide workers with the most competitive wages and salary increases. Studies have shown that union workers make more per hour than their non-union counterparts working in the same industry.
Nearly 48 million working Americans do not have health insurance. We are proud that all Local 952 negotiated contracts contain medical benefits.
Local 952 contracts include pension contributions to help ensure that our members will be financially sound when they retire.
Working under a Local 952 negotiated contract provides our members with outstanding Teamster representation and job security that is not found at non-union companies.
Our contracts include important language that provides members with critical safeguards in the workplace. Non-union employees can be fired without cause at the whim of management; Local 952 members can only be terminated if management can prove just cause.
