What is a union?
A union is a group of coworkers with the ability to collectively bargain for their work conditions.
Why do we want a union at findhelp?
We are unionizing to ensure that findhelp becomes, and stays, a place where all team members have a living wage, competitive benefits, job security, and a respectful work culture.
Who can be in the findhelp Solidarity Network union?
Generally, anyone who is not a manager, supervisor of other employees, or confidential employee is part of the “bargaining unit” and can join a union! Other exceptions include contractors and non-US employees.

Are unionization efforts protected by the law?
- YES, per the National Labor Relations Act you are guaranteed a right to form a union under this law.
- It is illegal for any manager to retaliate against you for union affiliation (by, for example, changing your work hours).
- It is illegal for any manager to ask you about your stance on the union, ask you how you will vote, or surveil conversations you have about the union.
- Managers can hold mandatory meetings, give sudden raises or promotions to encourage Helplings to vote no, and encourage Helplings to vote no in general.
- If, at any point, you feel like there is a violation of your right to organize, reach out to the Organizing Committee.
