The union is committed to providing its leadership, staff, and members with training to assist those who are struggling. Every day, we also advocate for better systemic supports through employer initiatives and public policies to both prevent and address the root causes of mental health issues.
Unions have always worked to protect mental health by addressing underlying causes of stress and anxiety caused by unsafe workplaces, precarious employment, and unfair wages. Now, we are broadening these discussions and making mental health a priority at bargaining tables across the country and making meaningful improvements for members.
Your mental health matters. Together, we can help each other through our struggles and connect workers and their families to the supports they need.
