Wages: Studies have shown union wages to be 20-30 percent higher than non-union pay.

Contract benefits: Union workers generally receive more and better fringe benefits- paid leave, life and heath insurance, retirement savings and pensions, etc.

Job security: most contracts secure against arbitrary transfers, demotions and unreasonable schedule changes.
