Just as workers unite in a union to protect their rights and advance their issues, unions can affiliate with labour organizations to further the aims and objectives of the labour movement at municipal, provincial, national and international levels.
Affiliation means that the union pays a fee either based on its membership or a flat fee. In return, the union and its members receive the privileges of affiliated membership, such as attending conferences, training, events, and the ability to participate in the governance/activities of the labour organization.
