Unifor Organizing Policy

Unifor will build a culture of organizing that is shared universally from top to bottom.

Organizing must become a top priority, a core function of our existence, at all levels of the union. We must promote organizing throughout the union; it must become part of all of our conferences, meetings, and education programs. Every elected national and local leader, staff person, and union activist must understand that successful organizing is critical to our future.

To build this culture of organizing, we must promote the concept that “workers organize workers.” Indeed, there is no stronger way to build a culture of organizing in our union than to foster more direct member participation in organizing campaigns. Those campaigns will need the active support and engagement of our leadership, staff and activist base at all levels if they are to be successful. By involving members directly in those campaigns, we will develop new activists committed to organizing and strengthen our union in many ways.
