It’s easy to join LIUNA in Prince Edward Island. Here’s how:

Step 1: Contact LIUNA
Call LIUNA Local 1077 in Charlottetown at (902) 892-4812 or toll-free from any 902 exchange at 1-877-216-4812. Or email us. Ask to speak with an Organizer. He or she is a specialist in labour law and will answer all your questions. All contacts with LIUNA are confidential. No obligation.

Step 2: Sign LIUNA Membership Cards
With the guidance of an Organizer, you and your co-workers sign LIUNA membership cards. The employer never sees these cards. LIUNA Organizers are sworn to protect confidentiality.

Step 3  Vote for LIUNA (if this is a necessary step)
If a majority of workers sign LIUNA cards, the Prince Edward Island Labour Relations Board will automatically certify the Union. If a vote is held and the union wins the vote, it will be certified.

LIUNA Will Protect Your Rights Under PEI Labour Law
Most employers would rather not have their employees represented by a union. But the choice is not theirs. Under PEI labour law, your employer cannot interfere with your decision to join a union. Employers can talk about the union generally but are forbidden from making any promises or threats, or to do anything that might prevent employees from making a free decision.

If your employer breaks the law, LIUNA will take legal steps to enforce your rights.

What are you waiting for?
If you think you need a union, you probably do. LIUNA is one of Canada’s largest and most respected unions. A better life for you and your co-workers is just a phone call or email away. Contact us today.
