Have you just recently come to Canada? If so, you may not be aware of your rights as a millwright.
Unionized millwrights are skilled workers who are entitled to a minimum wage of $29.49 per hour plus benefits, as of May 1, 2002. If you're making less than this, and are interested in joining the union, you can count on us to help you get what you deserve; we negotiate the best wages, benefits and working conditions for
our members.

You're also entitled to safety on the job. The MRCO offers health and safety training for all union members. We teach you how to protect yourself and others from injury, and help you learn to communicate properly so that accidents can be more easily prevented.
Some employers might take advantage of the fact that you're not familiar with the way things are done in Canada. It's important for you to educate yourself so you can get the wages and the safe work environment that you deserve.
