The Union Advantage 2013

union advantage

Unions make a difference both at work and in the quality of life you earn.  We call that difference the union advantage.

The Canadian Labour Congress is releasing this study to show just how much better the union advantage truly is – both nationally and in 30 communities across the country. This study shows that on average in Canada, unionized workers earn almost $5 more an hour than non-union workers.

All together, that union advantage is worth $785.8 million each week to the country – money that gets spent in communities and supports our economy.  But this advantage doesn’t just belong to union members. It benefits everyone. 

This section will take you through Canadian provinces and 30 communities to better illustrate the 'Union Advantage'. Navigate through the provinces to each related community.
