76th UE National Convention
August 25-29, 2019
How should a steward act at a grievance meeting involving a “legally bad but morally right" grievance? How far does the union have to take a weak grievance? What's the best way to protect members' rights in difficult discipline cases?
UE has put together this collection of resources for doing political education about "right-to-work" and building effective unions in "right-to-work" conditions.
A strike is always our last resort. As UE members we know that there are hundreds of ways to put pressure on an employer to settle a good contract. But the strike — or the threat of one — remains the single most powerful inducement to force employers to deal with the demands of workers. Remember - only your local membership can decide to strike - not UE Officers, staff or workers from other locals or shops.
