Your Union is an organization comprised of your fellow coworkers organized to improve working conditions and expand the rights we all enjoy. Union members negotiate Union contracts with management of your hospital - it's a legal and binding contract. When an employer diverges from any of those negotiated rights, terms and conditions, or treats workers unfairly, or discriminates against employees, we have the resources to hold the employer accountable through the grievance procedure outlined in your contract.


At a workplace without a union workers are called “at-will” employees, meaning, the employer can hire, fire, demote, reduce pay, change schedules at the last minute, reduce benefits, withdraw medical/dental insurance benefits, change hours, and require on-call without additional pay. Employees have little or no recourse.


The benefits members enjoy come from their commitment to one another, in solidarity, with the belief that UNION work carries value and they have great power together. Union workers believe that expertise in health care deserves a seat at the decision-making table. Your Union is member-driven, member-led, and member-funded. Union members take great pride in that they lead an organization that is 100% grassroots. Your Union’s funding is not tied to foundations, charities, nor government grants, but by the very people it represents. Thus, the organization only works in your collective interests. YOUR union membership makes the difference for everyone. Your support is critical. We all want fairness, equity and justice for all.

Belonging to a group that was created by healthcare workers and for healthcare workers, has endured decades in New Mexico, challenging employers and building expectations is a special status and legacy that has provided opportunities for fellow healthcare workers and their families. The leadership we have built, the shared comradery, and the power we must exercise makes membership in your Union a meaningful experience rather than mere dues deductions. It is transformative and has set the standard for so many that have built this nation.


You would not to go to a restaurant, retail store, or grocery store and even THINK of NOT paying for their services or products!  You may have been told the Union has to represent you even if you don’t pay dues, but remember, without dues-paying members, there is no Union. Don't take advantage of others, do your part and join to support the organization that works for your benefit every single day.


The Union’s ability to successfully negotiate rests in the hands of the members who pay dues and the power and strength of the Union is greater with every single member! Every person's commitment to improving the power of the Union is critical!


You benefit from your Union contract. Your contract is a legal and binding contract – and you benefit from every single provision including pay raises, leave time, sick leave, educational leave, work schedules, hourly wages, differentials, and your overtime.
