At Go Union Printing, we live our values every single day.
We’re union strong, because we know that without unions, we’d all be working 14-hour days and have no paid vacations, pensions or health care.
We are proud member of the Southeast Local 197-M, which is part of the Graphic Communications Conference of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (GCC-IBT) and Tampa Bay Typographical Union, Local 299 part of Allied Label which includes the Printing, Publishing, and Media Workers Sector of the Communication Workers of America.
WHY UNION PRINTING?
At a union print company workers typically have better working conditions and are active participants in the economy, particularly at the local level, since they are more prone to patronize locally owned businesses and have a Buy American attitude.
More than 75 percent of union workers have health benefits. Less than half of nonunion workers have health coverage. Union workers are less likely to use emergency rooms or go untreated, and are not a burden to the public coffers.
Nearly 70 percent of union printing workers have a pension. Only 14 percent of nonunion workers have one.
The 10 states where unions are strongest have higher earnings, better health coverage, less crime, more civic participation, less poverty and better schools than the 10 states where union membership is lowest.
What does being a union printing company accomplish? Unions have made life better for all of America's workers by helping to pass laws ending child labor, establishing the eight-hour day, protecting workers safety and health and helping create Social Security, unemployment insurance and the minimum wage. Unions are continuing the fight today to improve life for all working families in America.
Using a union printing company will ensure that your products are produced at a factory that has better conditions than a non-union printer by workers with pride in their craft.
We are proud to be a union printer. An advantage of using a union printer is being able to place the "union printing bug" on all of your pieces to show the world that you value the workmanship of a union print company.
