Please read the following message from Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. I urge each Unifor Local 88 member to participate.
We have a once in a generation opportunity to fix fundamental flaws with NAFTA, but that opportunity is about to be squandered.
After spending months in negotiations, the Canadian government is considering signing on to an “Agreement in Principle” with the American and Mexican governments, which would commit us to a deal without knowing the specifics.
Sign up now to send a united message. This deal could come as early as Friday, April 13.
A Better NAFTA must mean reforming NAFTA with stronger labour rules, environmental standards, the elimination of investor-privileges in Chapter 11, new trade rules designed to strengthen the auto industry, the protection of social services, the preservation of supply management and a greater balance in trade and investment and a fair share of the benefits for workers in each country, among other reforms.
Canada needs to hang tough on renegotiating a NAFTA deal that works for working people. Will you support working people and tell Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland not to rush to accept a lousy deal?
