WE ARE A DIVERSE AND GROWING UNION
Workers United represents 10,000 workers across Canada, and over 80,000 more across the United States. Our members speak over 50 languages, live in communities both large and small, work for international corporations and small local businesses, and can be found in a wide range of industries, including: garment and apparel; fitness and wellness; plastics, auto parts and industrial manufacturing; transportation, warehousing, and distribution; retail; food services; hotels and hospitality; cleaning services; and healthcare and social services.
Workers United represents the diversity of North America’s workforce!
Workers United is a dynamic and action-oriented union guided by its members who generate the change they want to see in their workplaces, industries and communities.
Everyday our stewards, elected local leadership, and health and safety representatives stand up for Workers United members and ensure they have the representation they deserve at work.
Workers United invests in its members. We believe that an engaged and educated membership is the key to building a strong union, capable of negotiating strong contracts and generating positive change.
BARGAINING STRONG CONTRACTS
Our members and bargaining committees are prepared and committed to negotiating strong contracts and determined to achieve the highest workplace standards possible.
By negotiating strong contracts, Workers United members are making industry-wide improvements, preserving good Canadian jobs and sustaining the well-being of middle class communities across Canada.
ORGANIZING THE UNORGANIZED
Workers United remains committed to the principles which led its predecessor unions to fight to bring an end to sweatshops in North America. From large manufacturing plants to small food service providers to social service workers, all workers deserve the protection of a union and the opportunity to improve their workplace standards.
SOCIAL JUSTICE & INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY
We advocate on a range of economic and social justice issues impacting workers both in Canada and around the world. These include: advocating for a decent minimum wage; stronger labour protections; racial equality; income equality; migrant rights; and improving garment factory conditions in countries like Cambodia and Bangladesh.
