How to Start a Union

Step one: Get organized.

The Emergency Workplace Organizing Committee’s Organizing Guide is a summary of the key concepts we cover in our training series. It’s not a standalone manual, but it’s a useful guide for you and your coworkers to learn how to start organizing at your workplace.

About the Emergency Workplace Organizing Committee

The Emergency Workplace Organizing Committee (EWOC) is a project of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America (UE) to build a distributed, grassroots organizing program to support workers organizing at the workplace.

Make the pay worth the risk

Protection from COVID-19

You deserve health and safety for your family, your customers, and yourself. Talk with an organizer to get the protective equipment you need at your workplace.

Better Pay

You deserve higher wages. Workers are at higher risk of exposure to COVID-19, and your boss can make sure the pay is worth the risk.

Fair Treatment

You deserve respect at work. Without you and your coworkers, your boss would have nothing. If you’re not getting the respect you deserve, talk with an organizer.
