Union Assistance Program

WE’RE HERE TO HELP
The Union Assistance Program is here to help with psychological and family problems that impact your life. This includes substance abuse problems that may also threaten your job.

UAP can help with other issues as well. Did you know gambling is one of the leading causes leading to divorce? We can help. What about eating disorders or abuse of over the counter drugs and prescription drugs?  These are all addictions that have an adverse impact on your and your families. Again we can help.

THE FIELD IS WHERE WE’LL START
Our counselors’ are now visiting as shops, depots and worksites. We will be out in the field every day, reaching out to TWU Local 100 members.

But you don’t need to wait until you meet a counselor on the job to get help. Call us at the number below and we’ll get you started. The programs we offer are voluntary and are kept in the strictest confidence.
