  • Unite into one organization all non-managerial and non-teaching employees regardless of race, creed, color, nationality, sex, age, political belief, ancestry or place of origin.
  • Act as a bargaining agent for employees and to regulate the relations between the said employees and their employers in order to establish better rates of pay, hours of work and conditions of employment, and to settle disputes arising out of such matters in an equitable manner.
