The Union Difference

Life is better in a union. Having a voice on the job means better pay, better health care, a more secure retirement, and so much more. It means having a say in safety, staffing, and other important issues that help AFSCME members do their jobs and keep America running.

Better Pay

Good Health Care

Union members have access to health care.
30 percent more union workers participate in employer-provided health care than those not in unions.

Secure Retirement

Union members retire securely.
60 percent more union workers have a defined-benefit pension plan than non-union workers.
