Local 814 and our Famous Rat

The Rat Gets a Close-Up!  

Local 814 Gets Featured in Story

 

Earlier today, NPR (National Public Radio) ran a strory about unions using the rat as a symbol to protest unfair labor practices.  They featured Local 814.  Take a look right here...

Union Book

Updated On: Jan 09, 2015 (12:04:00)

 

The REAL Union Book

To this day we say "buy your Union Book" when we tell a new member to join the Union.  But these days, it's only a figure of speech.  Members who join the Union receive a Union photo ID card and a copy of the contract, but no "Union Book."

What was the Union Book?  A former member's daughter was kind enough to lend us her father's.  In the photo above you see a "Union Book" from 1951.  Members used the book to track their benefit fund stamps, which would later be credited to them.  

These days, benefits are tracked electronically, but we thought we'd share this piece of Local 814 history.

MEMBERS BLOW THE WHISTLE!

Updated On: Sep 22, 2014 (15:41:00)

IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!

Big thanks to members working for Capital down at Metrotech last Friday who called the union hall and let us know that a sub-standard contractor was attempting to do a job there.

After 814 officials reached out to building management and explained that Century Moving & Storage doesn't pay area-standard wages and benefits, their trucks were turned around and asked not to deliver. Much respect to our members for speaking up and doing the right thing!
