Union membership rights
Employees have the right to decide whether they want to join a union and, if so, which union. It is illegal for an employer or anyone else to put unreasonable pressure on someone to join or to not join a union, or to discriminate against someone because they joined or didn't join a union.
Unions are legally allowed to enter a workplace for employment and union business. Both the employer and the union should deal with union visits in good faith.
Union members must be allowed to attend two union meetings (no longer than two hours each) each calendar year, on pay and during normal work hours. This is separate from and additional to discussions between union members and union representatives that take place in the workplace. Union members can also take paid education leave to attend employment relations courses approved by the Minister of Labour.
Employees can also require their employer to deduct union fees from their wages and pay them to a union.
