How Labor Unions Can Drive Increased Wages for Workers

  22 September 2015

Labor unions or trade unions as they are sometimes called are organizations or groups of workers in an establishment that comes together to achieve a common goal. This might be to get better working conditions, to get adjustment to firms’ policies that are not beneficial, to get higher pay, or a combination of all this.


Unfortunately, many workers working in different firms are underpaid by the organization in relation to their qualifications and years of service. In situations like this, the labor union has a responsibility towards ensuring the workers belonging to the union get their due.



In many firms, labor unions are recognized by the management and when issues pertinent to the union members’ welfare are to be discussed, the management is always ready to listen. So massive can some trade unions grow that union members has advantage in promotion and salary rise when compared to those not belonging to a union.


If as an executive of a trade union in your firm, you feel that the workers under the union are been treated unjustly, the first line of action is to speak with the management. This is usually done by the president of the union after discussion with the union members. The matter can be deliberated with the firm’s representatives on a round table, showing reasons why the demand is right.


If the union is going to be successful in this fight though, unity of thought must be there. In order for all union members to be of the same voice, communication is important. Meeting between the union members have to be held before the meeting with the firm.


Bulk SMS can be used effectively in bringing together members of the trade union to reach a consensus. Awareness of meeting days and intimation about the issues deliberated on can be pushed out through bulk SMS.


Another area bulk SMS can be used to great effect is in organizing peaceful protests. Once the matter on justifiable increase of staff’s salary has been discussed amicably with the management, and no favorable answer is forthcoming, the union members can embark on a peaceful protest on a chosen day. Before the day, the executive of the union will forward a customized bulk SMS to all the union members, explaining the reason for the protest and when it will take place.


The advantages of bulk SMS for use in this regard are that it is cheap; it reaches many persons at the same time and very easy to use. With just a click, you can get everyone you need down at the venue and in one voice, fight for what is yours.


The good thing about this is that, the firm will be reluctant to let go of all the workers in the union, being that they have formed an integral part of the organization. Through unity and same voice then, union staffs can get the deserved pay rise from their firm. Bulk SMS helps in achieving this unity and oneness of mind.
