Background: This award-winning series features stories on members of some of Canada’s largest unions.
These first person narratives of current members articulate the benefits of working in unionised workplaces. Members covers issues ranging from job security to family benefits, work safety to community activism.
Through participation in their unions, Canadian workers are able to foster safer and more productive work environments. Participating unions include: British Columbia Government Employees Union (BCGEU), United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW1518), Hospital Employees Union (HEU), British Columbia Teachers Federation (BCTF), British Columbia Nurses Union (BCNU),
and Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE)
The Work: This project spanned multiple platforms, from print to web and also to social media. Our team provided copy-writing and editing services, media recommendations, and translation. We also developed the WordPress site www.mylifemyunion.com to compile all content published since the project launch in 2010. My Life My Union has been recognised with a CALM (Canadian Association for Labour Media) Breaking Barriers Award.
