Organizing

Welcome to the organizing section of our Union web site. Organizing is labour terminology for joining a union. Workers join unions more often when there's unfairness in the workplace or when they want input into wages and working conditions where they work.

Here you'll find out what a union is really all about and learn what steps are required to join a union. You'll also get some answers to basic questions you might have about the benefits of joining a union and what your employer can and can't do after you contact a union about organizing.

The basics
