PEA members are distributed among different chapters. The employees in each chapter have a separate employer. The PEA bargains with each employer for the purpose of concluding collective agreements that define the salaries, benefits and employment terms that apply to employees for the term of the agreement.
As indicated in our name, the PEA is comprised primarily of professional employees. Our Constitution defines a professional employee as typically exercising a predominantly intellectual skill customarily at work, which is acquired by completing a prolonged course of instruction in an institution of higher learning.
