To become a member of Local 988, you will need to apply and be hired to a position with one of the companies where we have a collective bargaining agreement in place.

Below is a list of the many companies where we have agreements. Click on the logos to be directed to the website, career page or current job listings for each company.

If you do apply for a position with a company where we represent the workers and you get called in for an interview, you will want to ask the interviewer if the position you applied for is a part of a bargaining unit. If you have any additional questions, we encourage you to contact us.

Alternatively, you can organize your current workplace and vote for union representation. (We can help you with that!)
