Stop Trump Tariffs

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.

Thank you for taking the time to show solidarity with Unifor members.

In solidarity,
