Do you want to be treated with fairness and respect?

Respect,  workload, safety concerns, scheduling decisions that are unfair or arbitrary -- these are just some of the reasons that employees decide to join a union.

Unions help employees come together to improve conditions in the workplace. Without a union, employees can only act as individuals. As union members, you are part of collective voice and have the tools to resolve workplace problems.

Issues such as wages, benefits and working conditions are negotiated directly with your employer, resulting in a document called a collective agreement. A collective agreement is a legally binding, enforceable document signed by both the union and employer.

Belonging to HSA means better wages, better working conditions, and greater professionalism.


If you want to know more about the benefits of joining HSA, contact us directly by sending an email to @email or calling the union office at  604-517-0994.

All calls and emails are strictly confidential. Your employer and manager will never know that you contacted the union.
