Our Union

What is a unionWe are a family. We stand together with 25,000 hard working men and women in Kentucky and Southern Indiana to fight for you and your family. Fighting for a better life, serving you and your family and making our communities better is what we do. It’s what our family is all about. 

We work hard to make sure every employee gets what they have earned – what they deserve – so that they can make a better life for themselves and their families. No one in our communities should struggle alone or be afraid for wanting a better life. Working together, we can ensure hard work is rewarded and every family has the opportunity to succeed.
