The Union Matters | National Union of Public and General Employees

The Union Matters

Because an honest day's work deserves an honest day's pay

The union matters and it's here to stay!

Because I need clothing, a home and to eat

The union matters and I vote with my feet

Because my teeth need cleaning and filling

The union matters and to bargain, I'm willing

Because a woman's work has value and power

The union matters and equates by the hour

Because this single mom needs a job that's secure

The union matters and job stability they ensure

Because I want to retire, my service complete

The union matters keeping pensions replete

Hold fast brothers and sistersHold fast with all your might

Because the union matters, the union makes it right!
