Union In Politics Committee (UPC)
This committee is involved in political action on behalf of the membership. The committee provides the membership with objective information on issues that are important to their families, union and communities. Governments at all levels make decisions everyday which directly impacts our daily lives. Free trade agreements, such as CETA and the TPP are just a couple of examples of the decisions being made that can have an adverse effect on our members lives. The committee’s mandate is to ensure that our members are kept well informed about changes that threaten the standard of living and quality of life. The Committee will encourage our members to be politically active, to vote and participate in the electoral process.
