At UFAWU-Unifor, the safety of our members is of utmost importance to us.

The work of Shoreworkers, Tendermen, and Fishermen can be dangerous — involving elements that can pose risks such as beach lines, hairpins, hatches, nets and weed lines, pumps, winches, forklifts, machines, and heavy or repetitive tasks. We recognize that these factors have the potential to cause injuries, severe harm, or even fatalities.

To protect our members, we actively promote safe work practices and ensure the availability of appropriate equipment. Our goal is to minimize workplace risks and prioritize the well-being of our members.

If an injury occurs, we will be here to assist you. We provide support through Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) claims and negotiated benefits within your Benefit Plans.

Your safety matters to us.
