Why Unions Still Matter

Every day unions and their members are under attack. While corporate profits and executive salaries soar, American workers face disappearing pensions, increased hours and declining wages.Many say unions have outlived their usefulness. Nothing could be further from the truth! Why Unions Still Matter, an informative and enlightening presentation, developed by the Labor Education Program at the University of Arkansas Little Rock, in conjunction with the IATSE makes the case that strong unions are an essential component of a strong and stable economy. IATSE members who have seen this presentation have given it great reviews and say that it explains our history and invigorates workers to be more involved in their locals and in the Union movement.
