Know Your Rights
All workers in British Columbia have a right to join a union. That right is protected under both federal and provincial labour law, the Canadian Charter of Human Rights and Canada’s Constitution.
Under the BC Labour Relations Code, you also have the right to propose that your fellow workers become members of a trade union and to participate in forming a union.
MoveUP considers these rights fundamental in a democracy and will fight to protect them.
