Want a real voice at Austal--want union representation--sign your union card today. Austal may say you do not need to sign to have an election. NOT TRUE. The National Labor Relations Board requires that a minimum of 30% of workers sign union authorization cards prior to initiating an election process. NO CARDS--NO ELECTION!!
It is important that more than 50% of workers sign for the union for two reasons:
The cards being signed are used for the purposes above--to demand that the company negotiate with you, your co-workers and your union over the issues at Austal, and to initiate the election process. THESE CARDS ARE NOT AND CANNOT BE USED TO COLLECT UNION DUES!! Once your union is establised at Austal, workers will be asked to sign membership cards that are also used for dues. Membership and payment of dues will be voluntary--no one can be forced to join!!
