Unifor Local 333 BC
Unifor Local 333BC represents bus drivers, mechanics, maintenance and support workers at BC Transit, HandyDART Victoria, HandyDART Duncan, and Medi-Van.
Our union’s total 800 plus members in the four bargaining units are part of Canada’s largest private sector union called Unifor. We are governed by Unifor’s Constitution (see link under Unifor’s history) and a set of Bylaws that are adopted and amended by our membership. The bylaws also include local policy and procedures that govern how meetings are conducted, motions, amendments, grievance procedures, local elections, expenses, signups, vacations, shift changes, and much more for all bargaining units.
Unifor Local 333BC is a union that is responsible to its members for bargaining collective agreements, pursuing workplace grievances, enforcing and promoting health and safety in the workplace, and representing the best interests of union members in other ways.
Your union also takes public positions in support of members in the media and takes your concerns to elected government officials and staff at the municipal, provincial and federal levels.
Unifor Local 333BC is the public voice for its member and believes it is essential to get our message out to maintain public support for the important transit and transportation services our members deliver.
Unifor – National
Unifor is Canada’s largest private sector union, with more than 315,000 members across the country, working in every major sector of the Canadian economy.
Unifor brings a modern approach to unionism: adopting new tools, involving and engaging our members, and always looking for new ways to develop the role and approach of our union to meet the demands of the 21st century.
Every person of working age in Canada has a right to a good job and the benefits of economic progress.
Unifor strives to protect the economic rights of our members and every member of the workforce (employed or unemployed).
We are committed to building the strongest and most effective union to bargain on behalf of our members, working with our members to improve their rights in the workplace, and extending the benefits of unions to non-unionized workers and other interested Canadians.
Unifor was officially formed on August 31, 2013. It marked the coming together of the Canadian Auto Workers union (CAW) and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada (CEP) – two of Canada’s largest and most influential labour unions.
