Since 1984, the 4Cs has represented part-timers and negotiated union contracts that have made significant improvements in the wages and rights of part-timers in our system. While significant gains have been made, much remains to be done. Through the collective bargaining process and other union activities, we have the tools to expand and improve the salaries and working conditions of part-timers. To accomplish this, we need your active involvement.
