Organizing

Organizing workers and companies is an important activity for Local 793.
Workers have a right to participate in a union without interference from an employer.
An employer can not threaten, dismiss or penalize an employee who is seeking to become a member or officer of a trade union.
An employer also can not threaten or intimidate workers because they join a union, or threaten to close the workplace if a union comes in.
The organizing department of Local 793 has personnel across the province who can help workers that want to form or join the union, or contractors who would like to voluntarily sign a collective agreement with Local 793.
To speak with an organizer, or to find out more information about joining the union, call the union’s head office at 905-469-9299, or toll-free 1-877-793-4863.
