How Managers And Supervisors Can Support Our Organizing Effort

  • Encourage direct reports that their organizing efforts are respected and supported.     

  • Voice public support for unionization efforts. 

  • Speak up for staff in meetings with HR and senior leadership, emphasizing how union-busting efforts conflict with the organization’s mission or values.  

  • Educate other managers why workers are organizing, dispel misinformation, and emphasize that wage and benefit gains negotiated by the union members are likely to lift up non-union management staff as well.   

  • Demand the organization’s leadership to voluntarily recognize the union without requiring an election if a majority of workers sign membership cards.
