Abstract: Getting Organized is a guide detailing the process of unionization and certification in Ontario. Each step of the process is clearly and concisely articulated. Specific illustrations from case law are cited as aids; and sample forms and documents, including a model constitution, have been added as helpful resource material. The book is written by a union organizer and a lawyer with the help of law students and lawyers from the Law Union of Ontario.
Getting Organized outlines the common pitfalls in the unionization process, treats the special difficulties faced by immigrant workers and points to problems in unions that workers and particularly women workers may need to overcome. The methods of establishing demands in a contract are also explained.
