Organizing Workers

Duration: 
1 Day

Having a union is usually the single-greatest predictor of whether or not workers have decent working conditions and safe workplaces, benefits, pensions, and a mechanism for addressing employer favouritism (and discrimination).  Unifor takes its commitment to organize workers into our union seriously.  We believe working people need unions, and that our union, Unifor, is best able to represent them.  An organizing drive requires the combined effort of staff, community-based organizers (CBOs), local union leadership, and rank-and-file activists. If you would like to learn how you can get involved to support an organizing course, then this course will train you on the basics of a campaign. Help be part of bringing democracy into the workplaces in your community.
