Impact of Union Time
This documentary is unique in that it not only tells an important story, but is also a training tool used by organizers to educate and motivate union members and potential union members. It is a witness to the fight for workers’ rights and an active source of guidance in that fight. Since its April 2016 release, Union Time has been used to educate, motivate, and inspire unionized workers, social justice organizations, and the general public.
The film has been screened to a number of union audiences including the IBEW, the Teamsters Union, the Ironworkers Union.
In addition, the film has been shown at the headquarters of the National Labor Relations Board headquarters in February 2017. The NLRB is using the film for training and discussion in each of its 30 branch offices. The number of screenings in a variety of venues — including community screenings, college campuses, conferences, labor festivals, churches, and film festivals — is growing.
