Legal support

Our efforts to protect and advance the rights of our members under the law is an ongoing responsibility. HEU’s provincial servicing representatives and legal staff regularly take cases to arbitration, the Labour Relations Board and the courts that have far-reaching importance for union members in their day-to-day work.

If you require legal advice that is outside the collective agreement, you are entitled to an initial consultation meeting with a lawyer through Access Pro Bono’s Lawyer Referral Service.  You can phone 1-800-663-1919 (toll-free) or 604-687-3221 or use the online booking platform to arrange a consultation. You will need to clearly identify your problem and area of the province in which you live.  You can find more information about this service here:
