Earn a Fair Wage...
Never worry about asking for a raise again. Collective bargaining ensures workers receive a fair wage and companies put people before profits. Example: a $10/hr premium accrues to a staggering half a million dollars difference over a 25 year career.
...Keep a Fair Wage
No matter how far away your retirement seems, the best time to plan for it is today. That's why unions take care of this chore for its members, without the worker assuming any investment risk. Your pension is guaranteed, you can retire young enough to enjoy it, and you'll never outlive it.
Change the Status Quo
Your voice matters. Members of Local 75 have input on everything from their
wages and benefits to working conditions. Opportunities to contribute and make a difference in equality, safety, and advancement abound.
Avoid Career Surprises
Life isn't fair, but your workplace should be. Confidently look to the future with planned annual raises and consistent career paths for promotions. If a contractor isn't doing right by its employees, the union upholds a formalized grievance procedure and provides protection from arbitrary dismissal.
Unions help produce a more equal, and thus, a more just and equitable workplace of shared prosperity.
Pay It Forward
Your frequent access to training on the newest techniques and technologies not only benefits you and your career, but the industry as a whole. With our culture of field coaching, real-world hands-on mentoring, one day you'll be learning from the guru and later you'll pass the torch to the next generation.
Pride in Community Projects.
Plumbers 75 Madison Training Center
"We build across the nation, but the quality of craftsmen we have in Wisconsin is largely due to the training centers like this one. The training instructors had input on the design of the building. There's no one that knows the space better than the end-users."
No Weekend Warriors Here
"This is a pretty intense job...The safety is important with big equipment like the hydro vac and excavators. You're digging underground, and you never know what you're going to find under there. That all adds up to a very volatile situation if you're not properly trained."
