Benefits of Joining Our Union

Benefits of Joining our Union

Every year, thousands of Canadian workers choose to form a union in their workplace. Unionized workers bargain collectively with their employer to improve their overall working conditions. With our help, members have successfully negotiated contracts that have included:

  • Guaranteed wages and wage increases
  • Pension plans
  • Health benefits and health and safety protections
  • Sick days and vacation entitlements
  • End to unfair terminations and discrimination
  • Grievance procedures to settle workplace problems

Workers United staff work with our local unions every day to provide them with the resources and support they need to operate effectively. In addition, our members also have access to:

  • Post-secondary education scholarships
  • Health & safety training and assistance with WSIB claims
  • Education and training opportunities
  • Legal defense and assistance with workplace grievances
