Since 1936, Grain and General Services Union has worked hard to represent its members.
If you are a GSU member, the terms and conditions of your employment have been bargained for you by GSU.
We have bargained hundreds of workplace contracts and agreements, fought successfully for improved health and safety in the workplace, improved benefit plans, protected pension plans, and implemented grievance and arbitration procedures which have allowed disputes to be settled fairly and consistently.
We are proud of what we have accomplished and we will continue to work hard to improve workplace conditions for our members.
GSU represents working people who are engaged in agribusiness, grain handling, fish farming, livestock handling, newspaper publishing, oat milling, and printing. GSU members are employed in Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and Alberta. The majority of GSU members work under the jurisdiction of the Canada Labour Code.
GSU affiliated with the International Longshore and Warehouse Workers Union – Canada in 1995, and became part of a larger inter-union consortium comprising a total of more than 14,000 working people who provide vital labour in Canada’s import/export supply chain, small manufacturers, the retail, wholesale, and service sectors.
