you are not alone
we are here for you
Trade unions, or labour unions, have been standing up for the rights of workers since the 1800s. Chances are you know people who are in a union, or maybe you have heard many different opinions on what unions are, what they do and whether they’re good for workers, companies and society.
In Canada alone, unions represent over four million workers, creating safer, healthier, fairer workplaces in almost any industry you can imagine. Maybe it’s time you consider joining or forming a union.
Union membership means better pay, security and a promise of fair treatment on the job. But what about strikes? Where do union dues really go? If you have questions, we have answers.
