To me, work means Unionism and collective action. Companies have contracts with their vendors, their customers and their management staff. Why is it frowned upon for the working class to have a contract? As a union member of United Autoworkers local 249 in Kansas City, Missouri. I am secure in the knowledge that through my contract and Union membership I can seek justice and recompense through the grievance process. Being a union member has changed my life immensely. I am forever grateful to those who came before me and fought for the workplace rights I currently enjoy. I will continue to fight to pass those rights to the next generation of working class!
