Join the UNW

All employees in workplaces covered by UNW collective agreements pay union dues.  But only those who have applied for union membership are full members. 

If you sign a membership application you become a full member of the Union. You have the right to:
  • Have input into contract negotiations
  • Vote on motions, bargaining and strike votes
  • Attend Union meetings or training courses 
  • Receive UNW price discounts on goods and services
  • Become a union officer on the local, regional or UNW executive
If you do not sign a membership application card, you remain a "Rand Deductee." Rand deductees must pay union dues but do not enjoy the benefits of membership. Rand deductees are not entitled hold union office or attend local meetings.
