The 2013 Raiding Period is Here


The 2013 Raiding Period is Here

The raiding period for 2013 is upon us and we want you to be prepared if you are approached by another Union. Typically, the raiding period doesn’t begin until February 1st, but we know that some Unions will begin this process prior to that date. Visit our page about Union Raiding for more details. In the meantime, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

1) Do NOT sign anything whether it’s a business card, piece of paper or brochure.

2) If approached, call your Union representative immediately.

3) Don’t be fooled by their promises! Visit our Union Raiding information page for specific questions you can ask to make sure you are getting the facts.

Always remember that switching unions can have a serious impact on your wages, benefits, pension and ability to work in your trade. Get the facts on Union Raiding and get prepared NOW.

Contact us for more information today, and a union representative will get back to you shortly.
