We are often asked why unions are involved in politics. Don’t we have enough to do just coping with collective bargaining and workplace problems?
But unions don’t exist in a vacuum.
Our strength and ability to represent our members is affected by the broader climate around us, including the impact governments have on our trade union rights, the rights of unions to exist and to participate in free and fair collective bargaining, the strength of health and safety laws, the quality of our health care, minimum wages, pay equity and women’s reproductive rights.
Governments shape economic policy which of course has a huge impact on the economic and social well-being of our members.
