Benefits of Organizing

Organizing is extremely important to the membership of Local 139. Our organization efforts increase our market share, which means increased bargaining strength. The benefits of organizing are undeniable. Local 139 works tirelessly to provide a voice for its members, and we value your contribution. We’re stronger when we work as a unified group than we are as individuals.
