Merit gives our members a voice.

Advancing open shop

Our members are busy building Alberta’s hospitals, schools and homes – they don’t have time to attend all the meetings, read long documents and speak to legislators. Merit has decades of government relations experience. We have representation on several committees (Apprenticeship and Industry Training, BuildForce, etc.). Our knowledgeable staff examine policies and legislation to highlight important information to pass along to members and their employees.
