Have a question that isn’t answered? Just ask.
Yes. It’s the law.
All of our raises and benefits are protected by law when we vote to join NUHW. Since more than 4,000 Kaiser workers in five separate bargaining units voted to join NUHW, the federal government has repeatedly used its strongest enforcement power to protect all our scheduled raises and benefits and to force Kaiser to honor the terms and conditions of our previous contracts.
It is settled law that employees have the right to change unions, and when we do, the terms and conditions of our contract remain in place. You can call the National Labor Relations Board for yourself at 1-866-667-6572, and ask them about our rights under the “More Truck Lines” decision.
