Join PPWC Local 9
Do you want a union while maintaining local autonomy?
Are you ready to meet your employer on equal terms?
Do you want the security of a negotiated collective agreement?
The PPWC constitution ensures that our union will be controlled by rank-and-file workers. We believe in the full voice for our membership. Elections for PPWC officers are by secret ballot vote at the plant level.
Only with the establishment of democratically-controlled, Canadian union will workers be able to formulate policies and bargaining demands in tune with Canadian needs.
Joining a labour union is one of the best and influential decisions a worker can make in his or her life. Unions have a long history of protecting the rights of workers, fighting for social justice and equality, and bettering the working lives of millions of Canadians.
The Public and Private Workers of Canada (PPWC) is a proudly democratic, independent union consisting of thousands of workers from a variety of industries throughout British Columbia and Vancouver Island.
Why the PPWC?
The PPWC is a truly democratic, independent and grassroots union, where your voice will be heard. Workers’ interests will be better served inside the PPWC, where you and your co-workers will be represented in the workplace and at the bargaining table.
The PPWC believes that working people in British Columbia and throughout Canada deserve better. When people come together and want to make a difference, they isn’t anything they can’t do. As the old saying goes: “United we stand strong.”
