10 questions about working at CLAC Union
How is CLAC different?
Asked by CLAC Union 7 February 2020
Ever since we started in 1952, we have been guided by principles of respect, dignity, and fairness in the workplace rooted in our foundation. These principles underpin how we negotiate and arbitrate on your behalf and make us different from and more progressive than traditional unions. The bottom line is that aggression is not effective. Dialogue gets results.Our constructive approach means we use our size and experience to negotiate and arbitrate through dialogue, rather than unnecessary confrontation. It also means you get to keep working at full pay. But when we need to get tough, we do so while using the same constructive approach. Our track record proves we get results for our members.

A local is a geographically localized chapter or branch of a union consisting of one or more bargaining units. Locals have elected officials as well as office staff. They can vary in size, depending on the size of the geographic area. The purpose of locals is to negotiate and administer collective agreements for their members. Locals are legally required to have a constitution, bylaws, and elected officers, which makes them unions in their own right.In our case, we’re both a union and also a national organization of affiliated locals (i.e., local unions). We have a national constitution that governs CLAC as well as each local union. Locals are serviced from our regional member centres, which negotiate and administer collective agreements and represent members.

How is CLAC affiliated?
Asked by CLAC Union 28 June 2019
Within Canada, CLAC is not affiliated with any provincial or national labour federation or congress, which means we’re independent. At the international level, however, we’re affiliated with the World Organization of Workers (WOW), which represents over 1.3 million workers in 130 labour unions from over 60 countries.
