“Every person is free to join a trade union of his (or her) own choice and to participate in its lawful activities…” . “… no employer of employees in the unit shall alter the rates of pay or any other term or condition of employment or any right or privilege of such employees…” Canadian Labour Law

SECRECY – The law guards secrecy of your signature on a union membership card just as it guards the sanctity and secrecy of the polling booth at election time. Joining a union is your democratic right and NO ONE but you and the union organizer knows whether you signed a card or not.

NO REPRISALS – Once the majority of you have decided you want the union, the employer is not permitted (by law) to withdraw any of the existing benefits or change working conditions (wages, hours of work, etc.) unless you and your union first agree to it.

These are your rights under the law

You have the right to join the union and ask others to join;

You have the right to attend meetings and to ask others to attend;

You have the right to give out leaflets to other employees on your own time away from company property;

You have the right to do anything else to help get the union going so long as you do not interfere with the work or violate announced company policy.
