The Telecommunications Workers Union has a long and proud history of representing communications workers and workers in related fields. We strive to negotiate collective agreements that promote fair wages as well as just and equitable treatment for all. At the TWU, we believe that member participation and input is essential to the successful operation of the organization.
The TWU has more than 50 years of experience in dealing with employers and providing services to its members, protecting and improving their wages, benefits and working conditions. We invite member participation at every level of our organization through a democratic process that encourages two-way communication between members and elected officers. The TWU has built a reputation for guarding the principles which maintain the integrity of the labour movement and which encourage commitment and activism.
The TWU convention is the highest governing authority of the Union. The Executive Council exercises the authority of the convention between conventions. The Council takes action and renders decisions necessary to carry out the resolutions and instructions of the TWU Convention.
It is the policy of our organization to maintain its affiliation with the Canadian Labour Congress and related Labour Federations, the National Alliance of Communications Workers, and any other organizations approved by the TWU Convention and ratified by the membership.
