Why choose a Union Local No. 104 Sheet Metal Worker?
Good sheet metal workers are true craftsmen. Each one is required to have been fully trained in a wide variety of disciplines...and to use these talents, both mental and physical, on a daily basis. This assures you of getting a skilled professional, worthy of the respect the Sheet Metal Industry has proudly earned.
Why join the union?
Unions provide social and economic justice to employees who work for an hourly wage. Workers have joined unions because they know they have a far greater chance of success with the strength of a union for support. When an individual goes one-on-one with an employer, the chances for success are virtually zero. American workers have been joining together in democratic unions since the end of the 18th Century. Economic history has shown that only when workers join together in unions, can their voices be heard and the lives of themselves and their families be bettered
Today, some 14 million men and women belong to unions affiliated with the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO). They include teachers, doctors, lawyers, construction workers, airline pilots, technicians, engineers, sports stars, and on and on.
``Long ago we stated the reason for labor organizations. We said that they were organized out of the necessities of the situation; that a single employee was helpless in dealing with an employer; that he was dependent ordinarily on his daily wage for the maintenance of himself and family; that if the employer refused to pay him the wages that he thought fair, he was nevertheless unable to leave the employer and resist arbitrary and unfair treatment; that union was essential to give laborers opportunity to deal on equality with their employer."
- Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court Charles Evans Hughes, in NLRB v. Jones & Laughlin Steel Corp., 301 U. S.1 at 33.
