"...We also strive towards restoring management's respect for the individual
and the value we bring to the company as employees," the union's mission
statement said. "Our mission is to make our voice heard with IBM management,
shareholders, government and the media. While our ultimate goal is
collective bargaining rights with IBM, we will build our union now and
challenge IBM on the many issues facing employees from off-shoring and job
security to working conditions and company policy."
