HEU's Policy and Procedures Manual (updated 2019) is a living document that guides the operational aspects of the union. It describes the union’s positions on workplace issues; the labour movement; public policy and social justice issues; equity and human rights; and, health care and seniors care issues. It also outlines HEU’s internal policies and procedures.
The Policy and Procedures Manual is regularly re-visited and updated. Policies are proposed and voted on at Convention. Resolutions not addressed at Convention are referred to the Provincial Executive (P.E.) for consideration and can be adopted by P.E. Policies can also be set by the P.E.
