WHAT EVERY MERIT MEMBER HAS IN COMMON

Our members all own or work in Open Shop Construction Businesses

and together we tackle our most relevant challenges as business owners to improve opportunities for ourselves and our work teams.

We all want to accelerate our ability and freedom to grow.

We’re not anti-union – but we do develop apprenticeship programs, have each other’s back – and champion legislation that protects our open shop employees and businesses.

We all appreciate affordable employee health and life benefits,

and have access to an Employee Benefits Plan that’s tailored specifically to our shared needs.

WHY WE EXIST

HOW WE DO IT

We exist for one reason – to keep people working.

We partner to accelerate growth, we find ways to help each other, and we do whatever it takes to protect our freedom to grow as Open Shop Business Owners in Nova Scotia’s Construction Industry.

We work side-by-side to champion flexibility, freedom & growth

As business owners, creating new opportunities for growth means we are fully invested in empowering each other – and our employees on a daily basis. For us it’s pretty simple – the best way forward is to ensure we all succeed as open shop business owners.
