Everytime I look into unionizing my workplace the first step is always "talk to co-workers about unions". Unfortunately, I am awkward and conflict-averse so that's pretty much a non-starter. Is there a union I can contact that will come in and unionize us by force??

yeah unfortunately in my experience if you don't want to put in the work of organizing your coworkers it is better just to get into a job that already is a union gig.

Depending on your industry, there might be. They have people who coordinate organizing for a living so if you think it might catch on, it's worth talking to one of them. They'll know the process.

it is here too, but yeah, good luck with that. from my understanding the way to do it is to first get at least 75% of your coworkers organized and willing to sign a card check and vote in an election, without anyone in management finding out you're doing it

Hmm its interesting you guys can start your own unions, here there are pre-existing unions (like the SDA is for all retail and warehouse people, the CFMEU is for construction workers, there are plumbers and electrician's unions etc). Do you guys not have big unions like that you can join?

yeah, we do, and typically that's how it works. there's a lot of unions for particular trades like the IBEW (electricians among others), SEIU (service industries particularly healthcare and sanitation), AFSCME (government employees), the Teamsters (lots of blue-collar industries tbh), UFCW (mostly grocery store employees, also sadly the only union i've ever been a part of), etc. the AFL-CIO is the parent union of a lot of them, and they're kinda garbage, but it's something.

the little bits of unionization effort in my industry have come through CWA (Communication Workers of America) and that's probably who i would reach out to if i was trying to unionize my shop. a few years ago when there was a bit of a push to try to unionize the industry, we were trying to talk to some IATSE folks (which organizes a lot of the entertainment industry, for stage and screen productions especially), but there's been more traction coming from CWA.

i don't think there'd be any legal reason stopping us from just forming our union and calling it Cool Orbs Club or whatever, but without the support of one of the larger unions it's probably not gonna go anywhere

Ahh right, that makes sense. Here there can sometimes be issues of not knowing which union is best, unions being disempowered etc, and fees can be expensive! Casual people (who arguably need union support the most) are least likely to join cos of fees :negative:

Restaurant manager isn't here but he called to tell me we should bring less types of beer and only a few kegs to an event for some reason. Even though cold storage is provided so it's not like we'll get charged for having more, and it's half an hour away without traffic but yeah, we'll just go get more kegs if we run out. Expert planning!
