Support Striking Shelter Workers

The workers of Lennox & Addington Interval House, Napanee, have been on strike for over a month, yet management has left them out in the cold. 

Interval House’s mission is to provide a safe place for our community’s most vulnerable: abused woman and their children. 

Yet when asked to improve the health and safety of working conditions, the members of Local 414 are ignored. 

Enough is enough. 

It’s time for management to get back to the table and show workers respect. 

Clean Harbors Strike

Sarnia, Ontario

Background

More than 70 Unifor members doing the dangerous work of treating toxic waste went on strike on November 22 after the employer refused to negotiate a fair collective agreement.

What’s at stake?

Unifor members are seeking greater assurance from the employer that rules will be followed so there is fairness and safety for women in the workplace. Local 914 members are also seeking fair wage increases, benefits, and increased training at this dangerous workplace.

Men speak out to end gender-based violence

Unifor’s activism against violence against women and gender-based violence in all its forms is strong and longstanding. Together workers have won efforts to prevent violence, and better support survivors. Women have led the way.

Women still experience violence predominantly at the hands of men, most often their intimate partners or family members. Men's violence against women has increased sharply during the pandemic. 

By naming the source of the violence, we can focus more clearly on finding solutions.
