Workers are the recovery

Forward Together

August 31, 2021

This Labour Day, Canada’s unions are calling for a strong pandemic recovery that centres workers and their families and that includes a plan for replacing lost jobs with better ones.

The recovery must be built on good jobs that offer decent wages, benefits and a path to unionization. Recovery planning must also strengthen the public health care system by adding universal pharmacare and disaster-proofing our social safety net with investments in childcare and affordable housing.

Add your voice.
