Higher compensation. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, union members currently earn about 27 percent more than nonunion workers, taken as an average across the entire workforce. 
Greater benefits. As with compensation, on average union members receive better nonwage benefits such as health-care insurance, and a greater percentage of union employees receive these benefits, than nonunion employees. 
Influence over hiring, promotions, and layoffs. Union contracts usually have specific provisions about hiring, promotions, and layoffs, particularly with regard to seniority, the length of time someone has worked for his or her current employer.
Working conditions and workplace safety. Many unionization efforts focus on issues of workplace safety, work breaks, training, and other aspects of life on the job. 
Formal processes for employee grievances, discipline, and other matters. Union contracts typically spell out formal procedures for such matters as disciplining employees. 
Solidarity and recognition. Aside from tangible and measurable benefits, union membership can appeal to workers who feel unappreciated, humiliated, or let down by management.
