The Campaign

Below are information sheets you need to read in order to understand how “easy” it is to organize your workplace.

The first thing to do is to see how much support you will have if you decide that The Teamsters is the right choice for you and your co-workers. If there is support then the next step is to call the Locals Organizer.

Remember, it is your right under Ontario Law to organize and choose the union of your choice.
