Organizing is the act of workers coming together to bargain collectively for better working conditions, higher wages, and fair representation. It is the essentially the most important aspect of unionization. When workers come together, it effectively evens the playing field with the employer. There is strength in numbers. This strength cannot be achieved individually. District Council 4 and the IUPAT fights for the rights of working people. Our goal is to achieve better conditions for all people working in the painting, finishing, and glazing industries, as well as other private and public sector employees.
