Without a union, your boss can essentially do whatever they want. But you and your colleagues can change this by organizing and forming a union — it’s your legal right.

Over 9,000 health care and higher education workers have chosen to organize with AFT Vermont, negotiating contracts that improve wages and working conditions and passing legislation that benefits working-class people.
