The personal information that we collect on the website helps us to efficiently and effectively represent union members, to pursue our advocacy agenda and to provide valuable member benefits. In order to advance these goals and activities, we may share the personal information that we collect about you with third parties that perform services on our behalf, such as our web site host Squarespace.
