Universities and Colleges


The CAW now represents over 4,000 members who work in the education sector. Most are employed by universities in a range of functions, including support staff, research and maintenance jobs. Over half of our total members in this sector are employed at McMaster University in Hamilton. Several additional bargaining units are found at other universities in Ontario, Manitoba, and Nova Scotia.

Several hundred more members work for elementary and secondary school districts in Ontario.

Education is one of the most highly unionized sectors in the whole Canadian economy. Over 70 percent of all workers in education belong to a union.
