Organizing

The UFAWU-Unifor can offer you safety and protection while we help you "organize" your workplace.

Things to Consider

  • Are people not being treated fairly?
  • Is there favouritism for callout or better jobs? 
  • Is the active fishermen or tendermen's share too small?
  • Are your wages or prices lower than they should be?
  • Is your benefits package poor or non-existent?

Steps

  1. Talk it over with a few trusted co-workers
  2. Contact UFAWU-Unifor
  3. Union staff will give you the tools and help talk to other plant members or boat crew about joining UFAWU-Unifor.
  4. Once more than 51% sign a Union Card, then we apply to the Labour Relations Board for Certification.
  5. If the Labour Relations Board determines that the majority signed cards the UFAWU-Unifor will be certified to be the collective bargaining agent
  6. The next step is to elect your Negotiating Committee, then the Committee and the Union negotiate a FIRST Collective Agreement.
