Right to Join a Union

In BC, workers are protected by law from punishment by employers for engaging in union activity. This means that every worker in the province has the right to join a union if they choose.

Joining a union means having the power to negotiate your terms of work with your employer, and usually means better pay, more benefits, a safer work environment, and fairness and dignity in the workplace. Union jobs are good jobs, and good jobs grow healthy and vibrant communities.

For more information on how to join a union, or to be put into contact with a union organizer in your sector, please call the BCFED at 604-430-1421.
