ARE YOU STRUGGLING TO GET BY?

It's Time To Bring LiUNA To Work


An estimated one in seven Canadians, almost 5 million people — currently live in conditions of poverty, often as a result of ‘low wages’. That means that millions of people across our country struggle to meet their most basic needs every day; to make challenging decisions like paying the electricity bill or going to the dentist, buy nutritious food or buy a transit pass. These individuals are at higher risk of homelessness, have an increased risk of anxiety and emotional struggles.

Almost 1 in every 5 households experience serious housing affordability issues (spending over 50% of their low income on rent) which puts them at risk of homelessness. That is why our Union advocates for workers in every Province to earn a ‘living wage,’ even more so… to earn a ‘Union Wage.’

WAGES YOU CAN RAISE A FAMILY ON

A Union Wage

Definition: A union wage premium refers to the degree in which union wages exceed non-union member wages. Union wage premiums are one of the most researched and analyzed issues in economics especially in labor economics. Unions and their struggle for wages and better benefits usually target larger firms that have a concentrated industry. Unions have an effect on wages, the probability of gaining benefits, productivity of the worker, and workplace protections.

WAGE EQUALITY

Standard Practice Under A LiUNA Collective Agreements

There continues to be issues with gender and age wage gaps across the country. However, the terms found within the security of a Collective Agreement have no gender, religious or ethnic bias.

In fact, the Canadian Labour Congress reports that women with unions earned on average $7.10/hour more with a union in their workplace.

Younger individuals in the workforce under age 25 earned an extra 27% from jobs where they were covered by a collective agreement.

Unions contribute to equality for all Canadians in the workplace. Join us now to bring equality to your workplace.
