Notice to Members on Unifor’s Disaffiliation from the Canadian Labour Congress

January 17, 2018 IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM UNIFOR LEADERSHIP Over the course of the past year Unifor has been vocal and public about our concern with US-based unions trampling on the rights of workers and their democratic right to choose their own representation or to express dissent.

The CLC has been notified of this decision today, along with other l...

Add your voice for fairness- Personal emergency leave for auto workers

For the first time in Ontario’s history, everyone will have the right to 10 days of emergency leave — except auto workers.

Instead of 10 days, auto workers will get seven days a year and three days for bereavement, none paid for. All workers, including auto workers, in Ontario should be included in all changes to the Employment Standards Act ther...
