Put Your Union
On The Web

This is an exciting medium that gives your union the ability to communicate in new ways; but because it reaches out in new ways, this medium also contains pitfalls every local union should be aware of.  These guidelines should help you think carefully about what you want to accomplish, how to get a good site underway, and what legal and other dangers to avoid. 

Planning a Union Web Page

Make sure you have the answers to these questions before you get too far into the planning stages:

  1. Why do you want a local union page on the World Wide Web?
  1. Who are you trying to reach and who will you be communicating with, whether you want to or not?
  1. What should a union web page look like and what information should it include?
  1. Are you prepared to keep your site up to date?
  1. Are you prepared to be interactive (with two-way return communication), and answer email inquiries?
  2. Do you know the legal do's and don'ts to watch out for, and who will check content to make sure it complies with the law and Union policy?
  3. What tools do you need to get started?
  4. How to Publicize Your Site
