Why Union

Why a Union Store?

Staying true to OPSEU’s values, products and apparel offered via the union store are sourced with a union-first focus. When sourcing products, we ensure that Canadian, local and unionized shops are given first preference, in order to support jobs within the Canadian economy. When buying items produced by unionized shops, you ensure that you receive a product that aligns itself with your personal mandate of supporting better working conditions. A union-focused approach to sourcing products ensures that the workers who are responsible for your products are provided with:

Respect on the job;
Safe working conditions;
Better wages and benefits; and
Increased flexibility for work and family needs.

Further, your products are designed by unionized workers who understand the union experience; crafting designs for your products with an appreciation of your shared values and convictions. OPSEU locals and members can attain great products and apparel, made with your specific experience in mind, while supporting Canadian unionized jobs.
