What if I am a member of another union?

If you're in an existing union, that's wonderful! We believe that more support is better, and strongly support our members holding dual union memberships if you can, as other unions offer members additional coverage, benefits, resources - and in many cases established collective contracts. 

Speak to your current union and check that this option is available to you, and that our goals are compatible.
