CLC – Canada’s unions have three new reasons to celebrate

Canada’s unions have three new reasons to celebrate

Full Image
Three new reasons for workers to celebrate
Full Image
Workers across Canada have three new reasons to celebrate this week: safer workplaces, stronger public pensions and more fairness for temporary foreign workers.
 

We just won a ban on asbestos.

Canada’s unions have campaigned for decades to ban asbestos, sounding the alarm about the leading cause of work-related death in Canada. We ramped up the call this year, producing new awareness videos and taking the issue to meetings with MPs from all parties on Parliament Hill. We won the fight this week, with the federal government’s announcement yesterday that it is implementing a comprehensive ban on asbestos. That will finally put an end to the import, export and use of asbestos, and make workplaces and public spaces safer for all Canadians.
Full Image
CLC President Hassan Yussuff (7th from the left) and CLC Executive Vice President Donald Lafleur (4th from the right) stand with representatives from the unions and the families whose work made the ban on asbestos possible. All were present at the government’s official announcement on December 15.

We just won stronger public pensions.

Full Image
Yesterday, the same day the asbestos ban was announced, the Senate passed Bill C-26, legislation that marks the first expansion of the Canada Pension Plan in its 50-year history. Canada’s unions campaigned for a better CPP because we wanted to win a better future, especially for the next generation. This is an important victory. Strong public pensions are crucially important, not just to the well-being of workers and their families, but to the economic health and vitality of our cities and communities. We will continue to press the government for improvements to ensure that the expansion does not discriminate against groups of workers like those on maternity or disability leave.

We just won more fairness for Temporary Foreign Workers.

Full Image
On Tuesday, the federal government announced that it would scrap the “four-in, four-out” rule, which limited how long temporary foreign workers could stay in Canada. Canada’s unions had long argued that eliminating of this rule would be a first step to creating a path to permanent residency. Good enough to work here? Good enough to live here!

These wins are important for all of us.

These victories are the culmination of the incredible work of the workers who together make up Canada’s labour movement. Our thanks to the labour councils, federations, unions, and grassroots activists who have worked together to make this country a more safe, compassionate and just place for all. They are a testament to the incredible power of a united movement with a clear focus, strategic objective and a broad based campaign.

Please share this email widely to promote these victories amongst your networks.

BC FED – Wishes for 2017

Wishes for 2017

As 2016 comes to an end, many of us are making wishes for the year ahead.

Our wish is for a new government that will implement a $15 per hour minimum wage and put an end to poverty wages in BC. We wish for strengthened employment standards and health and safety legislation to make sure workers are safe and treated fairly on the job. We also need a $10 a day childcare plan that will benefit both families and employers.

On May 9, 2017, we will have a chance to make our wishes a reality. We can vote for a new government that will put the interests of working people ahead of the rich and the powerful.

To make this change happen, we will need to work together and that is why the BC Federation of Labour and its affiliate unions have launched a new campaign, Together for BC. We know better can happen here.

Join us at www.togetherforbc.ca and take the pledge.
