About Us

The Alberta Workers Association for Research and Education is an evolving workers support space focused on research, education and community building to combat lack of information, misinformation, community division, and worker isolation.

Our evolving workers' support space advocates for precarious workers.

Precarious workers face discrimination at work and their jobs are often non-unionized. Discrimination can be based on, for example, gender, skin color, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, mental or physical abilities, immigration status, age. 

We are often in competition with each other and isolated, where one group of workers is blamed by another. 

We aim to work to build solidarity across all workers: unionized and non-unionized, citizens, permanent residents, temporary foreign workers, seasonal agricultural workers and undocumented workers, workers of all backgrounds and abilities.
