Because a union’s strength is in its numbers, WEAC Region 6 has renewed the I’m In! Membership Recruitment Incentive project to reward Region 6 members who sign up potential members to the union.
Research and experience show that potential union members are much more likely to join if they are approached face-to-face by someone they work with who is already a member. From September 15 until November 15, 2019, any Region 6 member who signs up a new Region 6 member will be rewarded $50 for every new member recruited.
More information about the program and a copy of the compensation claim form are available online. To receive a reward just fill out the form and mail it back to the Region 6 office.
Region 6’s leaders hope this will be a strong incentive for members to have the one-on-one conversations, especially with new staff who have not yet joined the union, that are so essential to union organizing.
If you have questions, please call the WEAC Region 6 office at 1-800-397-2287.
