Sign your Authorization Card Today to help Win union benefits at Encore

When a worker signs a union authorization card, that worker is agreeing to be represented, by that particular union, as part of a larger bargaining unit in the workplace.

You do NOT automatically become a member of the union by submitting a card.

If enough cards are signed, and the union is established (by either voluntary recognition from the employer, or by an election), the union will represent the workers in the bargaining unit in negotiations with management, regarding wages, overtime, healthcare, retirement, workplace safety and hygiene standards, training, fair and equitable treatment, and much more. 

Authorization cards are anonymous to all employers — Encore management will never know exactly who signed cards and who didn’t.
