Know Your Rights

Our Legal Labor Rights as Documented & Undocumented Workers:

  • Join a union
  • Attend a union meeting on our own time
  • Talk to a union organizer
  • Declare ourselves as union supporters
  • Assist in forming a union
  • Even if we do not yet have a union, we are allowed to engage in a “concerted effort” with two or more workers to improve our working conditions

Employers are forbidden by law to engage in certain conduct. It is ILLEGAL for our employer to…

  • Threaten us with discharge or punishment if you engage in union activity
  • Threaten to shut down business if we form a union
  • Prevent us from recruiting union members during non-working hours
  • Question us about union matters, union meetings, or union supporters
  • Ask whether we belong to a union or have signed up to join a union
  • Transfer or assign us to a less desirable work assignment because of our union activity
  • Threaten to terminate our benefits because we unionize
  • Threaten to lay you off in retaliation for joining a union
