We are Lush workers from around the globe. We work in retail, manufacturing, and distribution. We came together after our own individual experiences organizing and fighting for better working conditions and fair treatment.
While we are from different parts of world, the similarities of our experiences with Lush are too much to ignore. We have bonded over what we see as the company’s resistance to act on criticisms, empty promises, anti-union tactics, and the gulf between their actions and their values when it comes to their own employees. GLU (Global Lush Union) is an expression of this bond. Together we are committed to holding Lush accountable for its actions and to advocate for the right of all Lush workers to organize without fear, without intimidation, and without coercion.
We are unionists. We believe in equality, democracy, and human rights. We believe that the right to organize is a Human Right, and the choice to exercise that right is up to workers without intimidation, coercion or interference from any employer.
We believe in the principles Lush stands for and we are committed to upholding them. We Believe that this will lead to a mores successful and more ethical company.



Make it Fair

Ontario's outdated labour policies and legislation is leaving thousands of workers in the province without adequate protection. Basic standards are lacking or are not being properly enforced, and employers are making it difficult for workers to stand up for their rights or to form a union to improve the quality of life for themselves and their families.

The Ontario government will soon be completing a comprehensive review of the Ontario Labour Relations Act & the Employment Standards Act. However, unions and labour advocates need to ensure that the government makes meaningful changes to labour policy to better protect precarious workers and raise standards for everybody.

In response, the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) has launched the Make it Fair Campaign to educate, organize, and mobilize communities across the province to pressure the Ontario government to improve working conditions for all workers. Learn more about the campaign, and how to get involved in your local community, by visiting their campaign website:




Fight for $15 & Fairness

In 2015, community, labour and advocacy groups from across the province launched the Fight for $15 & Fairness Campaign, in an effort to see Ontario’s minimum wage rise to $15 an hour and see important changes made to Ontario’s Employment Standards Act. These changes include: access to paid sick days for all workers; access to decent working hours; protection for workers against unjust dismissals and workplace bullying and harassment, and making it easier for workers to join a union.

International Solidarity

Workers United is a strong advocate for higher wages and improved working conditions for workers in developing countries around the world, particularly for garment workers in countries such as Bangladesh and Cambodia. Recently, we have worked to raise awareness around the 2013 Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh, which saw 1,134 garment workers killed and thousands more injured. In response we have launched actions against retailers who manufactured clothing in Rana Plaza (such as Joe Fresh, the Gap, Children’s Place, and Benetton) to insure that compensation is provided for victims and families.

We have also worked to support Cambodian garment workers who have been actively struggling and organizing  around an increase to their minimum wage to $177 (USD) a month.

Migrant Workers Alliance for Change

Workers United is a proud supporter of the Migrant Worker Alliance for Change (MWAC), Canada’s largest migrant worker rights coalition. Due to substantial immigration policy changes made at the Federal level that have resulted in limited pathways to permanent residency for newcomers to Canada, an increasing number of migrants have little choice but to arrive through various temporary work immigration streams, such as low-skill workers, live-in caregivers and agricultural workers. These workers often have few rights, are vulnerable to employer abuse and exploitation, live in poor housing conditions, work in hazardous and  unsafe working environments, and do not have access to the same entitlements as residents with full status. MWAC is working to ensure that Federal and Provincial policies are improved to better protect migrant workers and ensure that they have access to full and unconditional permanent status in Canada.
