Today is truly an historic day as members from both National Health Union and Union of Environment Workers have voted to unite under the new Union of Health and Environment Workers (UHEW). A Healthy Environment will definitely shape our way into a stronger, larger and sustainable future for our members from Ocean to Ocean to Ocean in Canada.
Congratulations are in order to all who organized the many local meetings across the country, conducted the merger votes and fielded questions from the membership. Thank you all for your engagement and support.
Over the next several weeks and coming months, more information will follow as this new Component will be holding its first Council meeting in early 2017 where many discussions and decisions will be made in order to bring all facets of this new organization together.
Stay tuned. This is just the beginning of good things to come!
