Introduction Canadian labour legislation recognizes the right of most employees to freely choose to be a member of a union. Many employees are first introduced to the idea of joining a union through an organizing campaign. An organizing campaign is conducted by a union in a workplace to persuade employees to choose the union as their legal representative. 3 IND 300 INTRODUCTION TO MANAGEMENT Source: Wiley (2007)

Factors Affecting Employee Support for a Union There are four factors that determine employee support for a union: – Personal Factors: - Instrumentality: will a union give workers a greater voice? - Perception and identity. – Workplace Factors: - The most significant factor is dissatisfaction and unionization may be perceived as a way to address compensation and management ignoring workplace issues. Economic Factors: - Workers‟ pay levels. - Unemployment rate. - Inflation rate. Societal Factors: - Attitudes and perceptions about unions. - Whether labour legislation facilitates or hinders certification. 4 IND 300 INTRODUCTION TO MANAGEMENT Source: Wiley (2007)

A successful campaign results in the union being able to request recognition as the bargaining agent for the employees. There are three initial points of contact: – Employees decide to form a union. – Employees want to join an existing union. – Union contacts dissatisfied workers. The Information Meeting: – The first formal step in which interested employees and a union rep meet off site and after hours. – Identities of employees interested in unionization and possibly the meeting location are kept secret from employer and from pro-employer workers. 5
