As an organization, we believe that every single member is in some aspect, an organizer.  We organize to stand in unity and bring society up as a whole.  The benefits of membership go far beyond a simple paycheque.  The benefits last a lifetime; they start by impacting us as individuals and families, then spread to our friends, our neighbours, and our communities.  We are a positive, powerful force working hard to not only preserve, but improve the lives of the workers of our province.

On a local (provincial) level, Kevin Barbisan serves as the primary Organizer for UA 516.  He can be reached by email here.

UA Canada has an Organizing team represented by various parts of the country.  We are pleased that UA 516 member (and President since 2007), Bryan Harris, was appointed by the Canadian Director to the Organizing team in November 2016.  If you know of any organizing opportunities, you can reach Bryan by phone at 604.996.3898

Whatever their faults, unions have been the only powerful and effective voice working people have ever had in the history of this country.
