President’s Message

On behalf of the New Brunswick Union of Public and Private Employees, I want to welcome you to one of the largest unions in the province. We are a very diverse bilingual Union representing more than 28 different bargaining components, with 8,500 members who work in every corner of the province, in over 600 different workplaces and in over 340 work classifications or job titles.

We have over 7,900 members in the public sector and over 600 members in the private and manufacturing sectors.

We are a democratic organization at the forefront of training programs for our activists who are the Union’s voice in the workplace. Everyday, we make it our mission to work for you, the members, and protect our public and private sector jobs through the good and bad times. Beyond defending our members’ rights under their respective collective agreements, we are a union that prides itself on working with the employer to find solutions to create a work environment that is respectful, equitable, fair and efficient.

However, we cannot do it alone. Our collective success as a labour organization will be measured by our ability to engage our members to become involved in our union goals and activities. We need you to be an active part in this Union, because a union is only as strong as its members. Now more than ever, we need our members to participate in any way they can.

I personally invite you to become an active member in your Union. To find out more on how you can become involved, or want to find out more about the role and responsibilities of your Union, don’t hesitate to contact me at our provincial office at 1-800-442-4420. I look forward to meeting you.

Susie Proulx-Daigle

President, New Brunswick Union
