Workers union - federation

The National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE)

Description

The National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) is a family of 11 component unions. Taken together we are one of the largest unions in Canada. Most of our 340,000 members work to deliver public services of every kind to the citizens of their home provinces. We also have a large and growing number of members who work for private businesses.

Our mission as a national union is to:

monitor provincial and federal labour laws and developments
analyse restructuring of social programs and public services
report on and contribute to legislation affecting the workplace
give our members a national presence through participation in the Canadian Labour Congress and internationally through Public Services International
develop and share successful bargaining strategies with our component unions
contribute to a national framework of services and solidarity to benefit all Canadian workers.
A Family of Unions
The National Union is different from most unions; it has a federated structure - in effect, it's a union of unions. Individuals are members of the National Union through their membership in one of our 11 components. The Triennial Convention, with delegates from all components, is the supreme governing body. Between conventions, the National Union's governing body is the National Executive Board, which comes from the leadership of all the components.

National Officers
James Clancy, National President

Larry Brown, National Secretary-Treasurer

Autonomous Components
The National Union structure is built on the autonomy and identity of components, while providing the benefits of belonging to a National Union. Components elect their own officers, set their dues, hire their staff and do their own bargaining. The National Union provides assistance and co-ordination, and national and international representation.

The National Union's dues are based on a percentage of the revenue of components.

Our dues rate is 2% of component revenues. For each dollar of dues our components collect, they now pay 2 cents to the National Union. The National Union keeps you plugged into everything, everywhere that can make a difference to what happens to you at work.

Coast-to-Coast
The National Union stays on top of national developments, with research and analysis in such areas as:

federal-provincial transfer payments
national standards for health and social programs
federal-provincial jurisdictional changes and employee transfers
tax policies
Canada Pension Plan
changes in (Un)Employment Insurance
legislation respecting the workplace
and many others
