What the Union Can Do
We hear often, what is the union doing for me? To phrase is somewhat differently, don’t ask what the union can do for you, but what can you do for your union. The membership is the bedrock of the union. Like public servants are there to provide services to Canadians, the union is there to provide services to its membership. Still, without membership support, the union cannot do it alone. Members must be active to support their union, and subsequently their own cause. Of course CEIU union leaders will provide direction and do their best to help members. CEIU staff provide advice, support and the overall administration for the members and operation of the organization, but ultimately, the members provide the “fuel” through their involvement and actions. There are numerous ways to get involved within CEIU:
- Attend the AGM of your Local
- Participate at events your union organizes in your community or workplace
- You can also contact your Local Executive (CEIU70705@gmail.com), an NVP in your region or your CEIU Regional Union Office for more information, volunteering opportunities or other way to be involved.
