Stop Trump Tariffs

Message from Jerry Dias, President Unifor Dear members, As you may have heard, U.S. President Donald Trump is introducing chaos into trade relations with Canada. His latest attack on Canadian workers put five pulp & paper mills in jeopardy of closure. Last month, the U.S. Department of Commerce levied a new round of “anti-dumping” duties on products produce by Kruger Inc. in Corner Brook, N.L. and Catalyst Paper in Powell River, Port Alberni, and Crofton B.C. In all, 1,500 jobs could vanish by the end of the year. These tariffs have one goal in mind: weaken Canadian paper manufactures for the benefit of U.S. producers—some of whom are close personal friends of the president. Unifor has responded with a high profile campaign to fight back against Trump the bully. I’m asking you take two...

April 27, 2018 Advance vote

Please keep April 27, 2018 in mind. The plant triennial elections take place this May, with the advance voting open on April 27, 2018. This is the ONLY time you can vote. It will take place in the Union Hall starting from 600 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. As members in good standing, all retirees are eligible to cast their vote at this time for all Executive positions. This will be an interesting event, with some major changes happening through the democratic process. As I am retired, I don’t do early mornings these days, but will get there around 11:00 a.m. I hope to see many retirees use their right to help set a new Executive for the next 3 years. In solidarity Brian

Employment Standards Act Regulation 502/06 ACTION NEEDED To Revoke Unfair Personal Emergency Leave Regulation

Unifor Local 88 sent a letter to the Premier of Ontario in January of this year requesting that Employment Standards Act Regulation 502/06 Paid Emergency Leave be abolished. We outlined the shortcomings of this regulation. The Fair Workplaces Better Jobs Act, passed last year, allows workers 10 days of personal emergency leave with two paid days for illness, injury, bereavement or other emergencies.  Under a newly added exemption in regulation 502/06, auto workers would be entitled to only seven days for personal or family illness or emergencies, and none of them paid. The Employment Standards Act should apply fairly to all workers, yet the government has deliberately chosen to create a double standard with one group of workers singled out to receive less protection than the majority. Over...
