Raftr for Labor Unions

Unlock the full strength of your union’s collective bargaining power

Build engagement, drive collective action and keep your union members informed during critical times like bargaining & negotiation. Send real-time updates, enable peer-to-peer messaging and easily distribute targeted SMS or push notifications.

Onboard and unify union members

Welcome union members into your secure, custom-branded community app available for iOS, Android, and web. Centralize onboarding resources, event calendars, union materials, and important updates. Foster a strong sense of community and belonging among members, increasing their engagement and loyalty.

Strengthen member engagement

Keep your members informed and engaged with real-time action alerts and important industrial actions through push notifications, SMS alerts, or in-app direct messages. Nurture connections among members with a shared cause and purpose, encouraging active participation in union activities.

Streamline critical communications

Effectively manage communication during crucial periods such as bargaining, negotiation, strikes, and other industrial actions. Bypass systems controlled by corporations or institutions, ensuring direct, secure, and immediate communication with your members, even in challenging circumstances.

Mobilize union members for collective action

Keep members informed about opportunities to take collective action and union events. Monitor activity, track engagement, and reach out to members who might need an extra nudge, enhancing your union’s collective power.

Mobilize volunteers to take actions and attend events

Invite volunteers into your private, custom-branded community app to access info on the latest news, events, and opportunities to take action. Create prioritized checklists, track user activity & send SMS and push notifications to members who haven’t engaged recently.

Provide a safe, secure space for communication

Create a safe space for member communication. Facilitate meaningful connections, discussions, and planning through in-app chat, discussion channels, and private direct messages. Protect sensitive information with multi-level permissions, ensuring only the right people have access.
