Plastic Bottle Deposit Petition.

Over a billion bottles and cans don’t get recycled in Ontario each year! Sign this petition to help change that.These recyclables either end up in our landfills or littered in our streets, parks and rivers.

Unifor stands firmly in opposition to Trans-Pacific Partnership January 23, 2018 Reports have surfaced today suggesting that Canada has agreed to terms on a revised Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement. Although details are sparse, this is a deeply concerning development, to which Unifor stands firmly in opposition. Unifor’s criticism of the TPP agreement has been unwavering. The original pact, signed in February 2016, was deeply flawed.  Major concessions were made by Canada that would have negatively affected our country’s auto and dairy industries, our cultural sector, access to affordable medicines, and other areas of major concern. The TPP, like other so-called “free trade” agreements, directed minimal attention to broader social and economic development issues. It failed to mean...
