Union members and their unions throughout Canada have similar goals to GSU’s: to improve conditions in the workplace and in the country as a whole. So it is only logical that unions work together to achieve these goals.
The GSU is affiliated to the Canadian Area of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) and through this organization to the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC). The GSU is also affiliated to the provincial labour federation in Saskatchewan – the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour – and the Retail Wholesale Department Store Union (Sask. Joint Board).
Through these alliances we can have greater strength in areas such as labour law reform, improvements to occupational health and safety, education, and strike and picket line support.
