Why UnionTrack® ENGAGE?


Anti-worker forces have long used their connections to silence labor's voice. It's time for us to unite and be heard! Our power lies when we use our collective voice to make unions stronger - when we are engaged, connected, and communicating in solidarity.

The threats to working people unionizing are real, and union officers and members alike can leverage the power of UnionTrack ENGAGE to organize information and streamline communications.

Loss of Dues Paycheck Deductions

Our opponents are trying to cut off our oxygen and suffocate the labor movement. They will not stop until every state bans payroll deduction of dues, making it harder for unions to represent their members.

So-called "Right-to-Work" Laws

27 States have enacted some form of "Right to Work" laws. With the new pro-union administration, the pending Pro Act bill, if passed, could do away with Right-To-Work laws bringing a much needed boost to union activity.

Recent Judicial Issues

The conservative majority of the Supreme Court delivered a sweeping and historic blow to the labor movement ruling that public sector workers who are represented by unions cannot be required to pay any union dues.

The Ongoing War On Workers

Corporations continue to strip workers of basic decencies with their large donations to anti-worker candidates and lawmakers.

Changes at the NLRB

With the change to a pro-labor administration in January of 2021 expectations are high that the new administration will move the NLRB back to its original intended goal as an independent federal agency vested with the power to safeguard employees' rights to organize and bargain.

How UnionTrack® ENGAGE solves some of Labor's biggest hurdles.
