We have mentioned how useful labor-management committees are for workers and upper management and the importance of participating in your democracy. Being part of a union is only half the battle, but taking the initiative to get make changes is even more important. A union is not just an office, its members make up the union. The only way you can see improvements at your workplace or in Guam’s economy is by voicing your concerns to those in the position to make these changes happen. Be empowered. Participate in your democracy.
