The Political Action and Awareness Committee educates and motivates our members to engage in political issues at all levels of government and lobbies for the rights of all workers.
Are you wondering why politics is important to your Union?
Whether it is a municipal, provincial or federal election or issue, the people we elect to lead our towns, cities, province or country can greatly affect our community and the lives of working people.
For instance, the federal government decides how much money in their budget will be allotted to each of the provinces for health care and education. The amount of federal funding received for public services affects our provincial budget.
