LOOK@MYUNION MOBILE APPLICATION
The union movement internationally has been under pressure from government and court sentiment and the need for labor to adopt better means of organizing and communicating has never been greater. It is adversely affected by globalism as there is a direct impact of market choice and union busting in different countries and zones.
In the US, for instance, union membership has been diminished to about 13% of workers and government workers can no longer be forced to join a union to enjoy union benefits/pay etc. It is a similar story for Australia and UK. Europe has strong unions and memberships. Some Scandinavian countries approach 90 plus% of the worker population. South Africa unions also have unique challenges that must be addressed
In each instance, unions have failed to maintain pace with the digital age and suffer from poor communication with members that are bombarded by news and entertainment and social media every day.
We put the Union out in front of all of that.

The LOOK@MY UNION mobile application addresses the challenges common to all unions and their members
We can group the major challenges facing labor organizing and policy into five categories:
Current labor law is tilted against unions. There are virtually no strong incentives for employers to recognize unions or to reach bargaining agreements. Government is ineffective in enforcing the laws on the books and powerful tools that unions might use to gain more power in the economy are prohibited.
Only a relatively small number of workers are employed at one site. Organizing workers at many of the nation’s large corporations now requires successful campaigns at thousands of worksites.
Industries are typified by diverse, global supply chains, in which a major corporation that sells goods to the public does not directly employ many of the workers who produce its products. As a result, the employer that is driving the price for the good or service being delivered is shielded from legal responsibility for the conditions of work, the compensation paid to many of the people who make the goods or deliver the service, and responsibility for responding to unionization efforts.
Labor law does not cover many workers. Approximately one-in-four workers are not covered by labor laws. These include domestic workers, farmworkers, supervisors and independent contractors.
Corporations have become much more powerful than unions and often more powerful than governments, making decisions that determine people’s well being and shape the national and global economy. Corporations use their power to cut wages and benefits, including by subverting labor laws.
Unions envision policies to address these challenges, in order to create a society of broadly shared prosperity.
Look@MyUnion App is designed to help Unions address these challenges
