Live Better…Work Union
“Where trade Unions are most firmly organized, there are the rights of the people most respected.” – Samuel Gompers
What do Unions fight for? Includes;
- Better Wages
- Job Security
- Occupational Health and Safety
- Holiday Pay
- Overtime Pay
Our Union, Local 1611, through it’s officials and representatives, bargains with employers to reach collective agreements on behalf of our Union members. This bargaining may include the negotiation of wages, holiday entitlement, work practices, dispute procedures, workplace safety, recruitment, disciplinary protocols, health, pension and other benefits. Whether you work in the construction or security sector, Local 1611 is here to represent and protect our members in their place of employment. Everyone deserves to make a “living wage,” which means to earn a wage you can raise a family with.
Do you want to work in a better environment, where your rights are respected?
The more workers who join the Union, the stronger we will be. If you are currently a skilled worker with experience in the construction or road building industry, and you are interested in joining LOCAL 1611… APPLY to LiUNA Local 1611 now!
