Unifor has more than 310,000 members across the country in 20 economic sectors. Our 7,000 members in New Brunswick work in various sectors: forestry, telecommunications, marine transport, manufacturing, hospitality, fisheries and education, among others.
We protect our members and play a leadership role in building thriving, safe workplaces and a strong economy so all workers in Canada have a good job and a decent standard of living.
Unifor advocates for and defends the economic and social rights of working people, including their right to: safe workplaces, secure employment, wages and benefits that provide a decent standard of living, dignity and mutual respect in the workplace. To achieve these goals, Unifor is not only active in workplaces and at the bargaining table, but in all aspects of our communities and in the political debate to make Canadian society more just and equitable.
To that end, Unifor Atlantic Regional Director Lana Payne will be presenting a paper outlining recommendations for the New Brunswick government ahead of its upcoming budget.
