On average, unionized workers in Newfoundland and Labrador earn 22% more than non-unionized workers and represent 38% of the total workforce taking home approximately $30 million more in wages every week. There is strength in numbers!
Unionized women earn $7.76 more per hour than non-unionized women. Unionized women in Canada have narrowed the pay gap to earn 89% on average of what unionized men make working the same hours. Non-unionized women on average make 71% of men in the same positions. And union negotiations continue to close that gap until we achieve equity.
