Representing frontline workers of Bell Aliant in
Prince Edward Island, Unifor Local 401 strives to provide just and safe working conditions for its members
and promote progressive economic, social, political, and cultural interests in the community. With members
working and living in all parts of the Island - from "Up West" to "Down East" and every point in
between - Unifor Local 401 greatly appreciates its ties to Canada's smallest (but mightiest) province.
Unifor Local 401 holds a seat on Unifor ACL (the Council) which is the recognized agent for purposes of
collective bargaining. The Council consists of members from our sister Locals who share Bell Aliant as employer
and represent each province of Atlantic Canada - namely Unifor Local 410 (Newfoundland & Labrador), Unifor
Local 2289 (Nova Scotia) and Unifor Local 506 (New Brunswick).
Unifor Local 401 is proud
to be associated with a Canadian national union that spans a wide variety of workplaces and trades. Unifor brings
together a tremendous amount of experience in the labour movement and targets its energy in bargaining for fair
wages, job security, pensions, and benefits that strengthen working families and the communities they live in. Unifor
is also devoted to lobbying all levels of government to develop forward-looking policies and laws to help every Canadian
- be they of working age or not.
As an associate of the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC), the largest
democratic and popular organization in Canada with over three million members, Unifor is able to advance relationships
with workers in both the private-sector and public-sector and create a network of activists from coast-to-coast-to-coast.
On PEI, Unifor Local 401 has a seat on the Executive Board of the Prince Edward Island Federation of Labour
(PEIFL), the sole central labour body in the province, representing approximately ten thousand union members and
a powerful voice for all workers. An active vehicle to address the concerns of the Island workforce, the PEIFL
is a chartered body of the CLC.
Unifor Local 401 invites all workers to explore their rights of
association by contacting any and all of the organizations listed above.
