We’re Not Anti-Union

WHY WE EXIST

We exist for one reason – to keep people working in Nova Scotia’s Construction Industry.

Specifically, it means that:

  • We partner with unions and post-secondary institutions to increase the relevance of, and improve apprenticeship training;
  • We collaborate with union partners when we have skilled trades opportunities on job sites;
  • We challenge legislation and practices that limit the freedom and flexibility for skilled trades people to work; and
  • We oppose any unfair work practices that put open shop business owners and their employees at a disadvantage.

HOW WE DO IT

We work side-by-side to champion flexibility, freedom & growth – no excuses.

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.
