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 now until March 31, 2018, any Region 6 member who signs up a new Region 6 member will be rewarded $50 for every new member recruited.
A copy of the I’m In Recruitment Form 2017-18 is available online along with more information about the program. To receive a reward just fill out the form and mail it back to the Region 6 office with the completed membership forms of the new members you recruited.
Region 6’s leaders hope this will be a strong incentive for local leaders to have the one-on-one conversations that are so essential to union organizing. If you have questions, please call the WEAC Region 6 office at 1-800-397-2287.
