Why do we need a union?


UGSW is able to negotiate a Collective Agreement that reflects the nature of our work, stipulating terms and conditions that must be respected by our employer, the University of New Brunswick. Arbitrary decisions and actions by an employer will not be permitted with respect to the contents of the contract. We have a collective voice and are able to make democratic decisions about our workplace. Our stewards, along with our executive and other committees, assist with ensuring the strength and stability of our voices.
