A New Member's Guide to SGEU

The Member Handbook

We have created a member handbook to help you learn more about SGEU, its structure, the union’s decision-making processes and the resources that are offered to all members.

"Educated and engaged members make the union strong and a strong union can lead to a better workplace."

We recognize that some of you may be joining a union for the very first time, and you may not be familiar with what it means to be a union member. We want to change that!

It’s important for members to understand how your union works, what it can do for you and how to get more involved. Educated and engaged members make the union strong and a strong union can lead to a better workplace. We hope this handbook will answer many of the questions that are often posed by new members and act as a refresher for long-time union members as well. 

This handbook will also direct you to other resources where you can find additional information or get clarification about issues of interest to you. Please take some time to read through the material and feel free to contact your Steward or your nearest SGEU office if you have questions.
