Local 947 works hard to maintain open and effective communication with our past, current, and future members.
Local 947's mission is to improve the lives of our members through collective bargaining and enforcement of union contracts, to protect the rights of our members, and to give members a strong voice on issues affecting their workplace. The wages, benefits and working conditions set forth by your Union represent years of progress, won by the blood, sweat and tears of the many who came before us.
