Posted in Local news

On Wednesday, February 2,  UNIFOR will be hosting two emergency phone actions with Justice for Workers, featuring Unifor members:

Please RSVP with Justice for Workers to receive the Zoom information.

OMICRON has created a new crisis on the frontlines. Workers and their family members are getting sick in record numbers; capacity restrictions are causing layoffs and lost shifts; reduced demand for goods and services are having knock-on effects resulting in layoffs and job losses.


Yet the federal government’s response has been shockingly inadequate.
Nobody can survive on the $300 per week ($270 after-tax) in the Canada Worker Lockdown Benefit (CWLB) and we must demand everyone in need gets at least $500 in weekly income support.
Help sound the alarm to fix our Employment Insurance system permanently.
