Pension deals with ownership may require union representation

In New York, unions are a critical part of workers maximizing their wages and benefits on the job. However, with the number of hedge funds that purchase businesses, benefits like pension plans can be in flux. In a recent deal that was viewed as a surprise, a billionaire head of a fund agreed to concessions in an agreement with the U.S. government to protect a supermarket workers' pension plan.

Union organizing may help workers improve wages, benefits

Many New York workers may be interested in joining a union in order to strengthen their collective capacity to obtain higher wages, better working conditions and other rights on the job. There are many large national and international unions, but some workers even form small unions at their workplace. The important factor is that workers come together in their industry to organize together to challenge their employer's practices. There are a number of federal and state laws intended to protect workers' rights to organize with one another and pursue collective bargaining.
