Report: Making the Case for Union Membership
New hire orientations are a strategic tool for building union power. High-quality orientations have proven to increase sign ups among new hires and bolster their commitment to the union. Committed members are more likely to stand with the union in the face of tough bargaining fights and political attacks. That means unions can devote more resources to going on offense, instead of wasting precious money and energy shoring up members for defensive fights.
Please fill out this form to download our new report and guide which offers simple, practical ways that unions can develop and enhance their orientations for new bargaining unit members.
The best practices presented here are drawn from relevant social science research, an electronic survey of 49 unions, interviews with officers and staff responsible for their unions’ orientation programs, content analysis of union welcome packets, and observations of existing orientation programs.
