To Be Part of a Movement
By joining CATU you are taking an opportunity to join a movement that fights for your friends, family, neighbours, and fellow members. In joining the union you are taking on the responsibility to struggle and care for those around you.
To Build A Democratic Voice
CATU is a grassroots, democratic union. This means the members are the union and we need everyone to win. We believe we can achieve much more by working together rather than individual fights. The more people we have, the more democratic our union can be, and the better our demands and policies can reflect the issues affecting the majority of working class people.
The forces that are tearing apart our communities and hiking up our rents have a lot of time, money, and power at hand. If we want a chance to push them back then we require resources and the strength of organised tenants and communities.
