The Professional Women's Hockey League Players Association (PWHLPA) is the labor union that represents the players of the Professional Women’s Hockey League (PWHL).
Our union was created in 2023 alongside the launch of the league, in an effort to protect the rights and salaries of our players, so that they can pursue a long-lived career in professional ice hockey.
We embody the league’s core principles — inclusivity, community, electricity, responsibility, opportunity and longevity — in all that we do. And strive to create a safe space for the success and sustainability of our members.
