What we do

Unit #1 Halifax Civic Workers

Unit #1 Halifax Civic Workers are outside Workers Employed by Halifax Regional Municipality.

There are over 300 members in this Unit which include; Labourers, Facility Maintainers, Gardeners, Utility Workers, Storepersons, Traffic Sign & Marking Technicians, Painters, Plant Operators including Arena, Rink, Pool and Engine Room Operators, Chief Plant Operators, Building Trades Persons, and Fleet Trades Persons.

People depend on public services; services depend on people to deliver them.

City workers touch every part of life: they fix roads, provide emergency care, test drinking water, connect us with library resources, run ice rinks, work at daycares, lead community workshops, and much more. We’re facing tough economic times, and that’s when we need affordable, reliable public services most
