Salary Equity

The average union-represented worker earns 29% more than non-represented workers. A 2016 comprehensive analysis of public-regional-university faculties found the difference a union makes: about $21,000 annually in pay and benefits. The IFO has fought for highly competitive wages, secured regular pay increases, and negotiated a salary review process to ensure you are being paid equitably relative to your peers.

Fair pay is best achieved through collective bargaining and strong union participation.
