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.  

In Solidarity,

Unifor Local 401 Executive Board.
