The Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) has just released this information for New Brunswick....

There were 92,700 union members working in New Brunswick in 2012.  That’s 30% of all employees. Their weekly payroll of over $88.6 million accounted for 38% of the total for the whole province.

On average, unionized workers earned $7.76/hour more than non-union employees. That union advantage translated into $26.8 million more every week paid into local economies to support local businesses and community services.
