Frequently Asked Questions

The LIUNA 3000 Union Dues are only 1.4%. Which means for every $1000 you earn it's just $14. More importantly, all Union Dues are 100% tax deductible. You also don't pay Union Dues until you and your co-workers ratify (accept) a Collective Agreement.

Your employer will try and prevent you from joining a Union. We have seen it all, including; spreading false information, crying in front of employees, making huge promises, paying workers to vote no, paying for taxi/uber for workers to vote no, etc.

The good news, is that you are protected by the law (Ontario Labour Relations Act), and your LIUNA 3000 Organizer is incredibly experienced at dealing with employer anti-union behaviour. They will help guide you through this common situation.

After you and your co-workers have successfully voted in LIUNA 3000 as your Union the following will happen;

Examples of what a Collective Agreement might include are; Wages, Vacation, Hours of Work, Seniority, Grievance Procedure, and many more.
