There is a wealth of information to be found on the Government of Canada's websites about collective bargaining in Canada, from upcoming collective bargaining dates, work stoppages, wage settlements, ratified settlements and more. Currently, the major issues being negotiated include wages, job security, health programs/benefits, and pension plans, where unions are being asked by employers to make more concessions and as a result, we have seen wages increasing at their lowest rate since 1998.

Our commitment to the principles and practices of democratic unionism define who we are and are reflected in our rules, structures and processes.
Engagement happens when ideas are welcome, involvement is encouraged and when the union actively develops the skills and understanding of its members.
The union is shaped by our relationships, by how we treat and care for each other. It is evident in the day-to-day bonds of fellowship and friendship.
