The Hamilton labour lawyers at Molyneaux Law have extensive experience representing trade unions on a range of issues and wide variety of forums. Molyneaux Law believes in the value of the labour movement and proudly practices union-side labour law in Hamilton, Ontario, a city with a rich union history, as well as and across Southwestern Ontario including: Brantford, Cambridge, Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph, Milton, Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Ancaster, Dundas, and Stoney Creek.
Unions have contributed many of the workplace benefits that all Canadians now enjoy:
- A shorter work week
- Better wages and working conditions
- Compensation when workers are injured on the job
- Employment insurance
- Maternity and parental benefits
- The right to work safely
Today, nearly 30% of Canadian workers belong to unions according to UFCW, Canada’s largest private sector union, including: nurses, teachers, journalists and professional athletes, as well as the more traditionally unionized occupations like retail store clerks, manufacturing workers, miners, electricians and other construction trades workers.
