At the UNE, we believe diversity is what makes us stronger. We represent more than 22 000 members, working in 67 different workplaces. Our members work in the public, private and non-profit sectors, in all corners of our great country and around the world.
We are teachers and mechanics, librarians and Foreign Service officers, plumbers and researchers, clerical workers and program administrators, passport officers and investigators —and more.
We offer the $1000 bursary for each of our ten regions
The scholarships are designed to highlight union principles, as well as promote the union and the labour movement in a positive way. The scholarships aim to create awareness of unions within high school and provide financial assistance to worthy students. We hope that this initiative will encourage youth to become more involved in the union, social justice activities and the labour movement.
