Welcome to the PPWC Local 5
Local 5 of the Public and Private Workers of Canada is a multi-shop local based mainly in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. We have approximately 600 members in 18 different shops in and around Vancouver and throughout the province. Our members work in widely diverse industries including plastics manufacturing, clerical workers, chemical plant workers, and airport refuelers.
Our members are governed by the Constitution of the National Union and the By-laws of our Local. Each workplace is represented on the Local executive by a Plant Committee, consisting of a chair, a secretary and, for the larger plants, members at large. Officers and Plant Committees are elected annually, and the term of office is from April 1st to March 31st of the following year. Trustees are elected for three-year terms.
Our executive committee meets once every month and a general membership meeting follows the executive meeting. Our meetings are held in the boardroom of our Local office located at 702 - 12th Street in New Westminster, BC. All members are welcome and encouraged to attend and participate in their union.
The Public and Private Workers of Canada is an independent Canadian union.
