Why Join Us

The PWU is the largest and most successful union in Ontario’s electricity sector.

Ontario’s electricity sector has faced numerous tumultuous policy shifts in the last 20 years. Predicting these shifts, influencing them positively where possible and adapting innovatively and intelligently―all in ways that create the most opportunities for sustainable, high-pay, high-skill jobs are product of many decades of organizational experience in the PWU.

The PWU has a proven track record of strong union representation and bargaining quality collective agreements with excellent pay rates, job security provisions, working conditions, pensions and benefits―without work stoppages. That’s why our union continues to be the largest in Ontario’s electricity sector.

The PWU provides extensive union based training to new members, Stewards, Chief Stewards and Health and Safety Representatives. Our union is financially strong, based on solid democratic principles and is supported by dedicated, knowledgeable and experienced elected representatives and support staff.

Join us and help the PWU become an even stronger and more unified presence representing the men and women who help make Ontario’s electricity system work.
