Organizing blitzes present an opportunity to speak directly to the individuals being organized. These conversations let you share the benefits of working for your company. You also get a sneak preview of upcoming talent.

You will also have a chance to answer questions and dispel any myths non-union contractors may have heard about what it is like to be a union contractor.
