Union Advantage-Machinists Advantage 

There are many advantages to belonging to a union. Fairness and equity on the job, better wages, vacation, medical and pension benefits are just a few advantages. Unions, through expanding the middle class and narrowing the income gap between rich and poor, also benefit society as a whole. Just examine the facts. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, in 1998, union members on average earned 32% more than non-union workers.

The union advantage is even greater for women and people of color. As the following charts show: women who belong to unions earn on average 38.6% more than women who do not belong to unions; Latinos who are union members, on average, make an astounding 54.3% more than Latinos who are not members of unions; and African Americans who belong to unions make on average 45.2% more than African Americans who do not belong to unions.
