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.

As an HEU member, you are entitled to an initial consultation meeting with a lawyer, at a reduced rate, who will help you determine your options and find the appropriate support you need.

If you require legal advice that is outside the collective agreement, please phone 1-800-663-1919 (toll-free) or 604-687-3221 to arrange a consultation. You will need to clearly identify your problem and area of the province in which you live.

Once you have paid your invoice, HEU will reimburse you for the first half-hour when you provide your name, your facility name, social insurance number and original invoice to our financial secretary.
