Experts have spent much time and money trying to discover why workers unionize, and they have proposed many theories. Yet there is no simple answer to the question, partly because each worker probably joins for his or her own reasons. However, workers do not unionize just to get more pay or better working conditions, though these are important. Besides money, two other factors—employer unfairness and the union's power—are also important. To vote pro-union, the employees also had to believe the union could improve their wages, benefits, and treatment. Supervisors should not threaten or interrogate employees. They should not make promises to employees or spy on union activities. Supervisors are allowed to tell employees that management does not believe in third-party representation and that management believes in having an open-door policy to air grievances. Supervisors may also share personal experiences they may have had with a union.
