By joining together, you and your co-workers can have a greater voice in your workplace and your community.

Having a union means you get to sit down with your employer and negotiate the terms of your employment. It’s called collective bargaining, and is entrenched in Canadian law as a way to bring fairness to the workplace. Statistics show that unionized workers have better access to benefits such as pensions and medical benefits and unionized workplaces are more likely to be safer and healthier places to work. By joining with your co-workers to form a union, you can start to improve your working conditions.
