Join us! We’re Stronger Together!

Strength in Solidarity“SEIU represents over 4,000 Omni/Empire workers in Quebec. There is incredible strength in those numbers. In Quebec our wages currently start at over $15/hr and will rise to over $18/hr under our current collective agreement.”

  Improved Working Conditions“With SEIU we’ve been able to secure benefits and improved pay. Now we’re negotiating pensions so our families can have a secure future.”

  Job Security“Our employer lost the cleaning contract at the Molson’s plant. We were able to secure our jobs with SEIU. Having a Union can make all the difference.”

  Dignity & Respect“Through the Union we can fight against harassment toward workers from the employer. It gives us the strength to stand up for our rights with dignity and respect.”

Workers in Halifax are Speaking Out

 

We need to come together in SEIU to make improvements.”

“When I brought my case to SEIU, I knew immediately that I had support. Before, I would’ve been on my own.  That’s the union difference.”

Kelly Johnson

OMNI

  “I met an SEIU member working for GDI in Vancouver. They’ve won benefits. Other SEIU members working for GDI in Toronto and Montreal also have benefits. Why don’t we? If they can do it there, we can do it in Halifax!”

Having a union is about dignity and respect.

That’s why we joined Justice for Janitors.

By having the union protecting us, we are secure in our jobs.

The more members we have with SEIU Local 2 the stronger we will be.

The more Apollo 8 workers that are part of the union, the more strength we have to improve our situation.

I am excited to hear that Omni workers in Halifax are coming together to make improvements by forming a union. We’re doing the same here in Edmonton to have a voice at work and to improve our wages, benefits and working conditions.

The more Omni workers across Canada join Justice for Janitors, the stronger we all become!
