Union of Health and Environment Workers (UHEW)

The Public Service Alliance of Canada is organized into 17 Components and our Component is the Union of Health and Environment Workers (UHEW).
It is made up of about 11,500 members from 52 Locals spread across Canada from coast to coast, North and South.

Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC)

The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) is one of the largest unions in Canada. The PSAC is more than 200,000 members strong in every province and territory in Canada and in locations around the world.”
The PSAC-NCR consists of anywhere from 47,000 to 52,000 members and with over 125 locals (2019).
The PSAC works on a National level by countering threats to its members such as contracting out, de-regulation, privatization and devolution practices. PSAC represents members at the adjudication level.
PSAC also uses its power at the bargaining table through political lobbying, direct action, forming alliances with other unions and social justice groups.
The PSAC takes political action and uses mobilization efforts to push back when the quality of our work standards and social lives are at stake.
