Our Telecoms, Our Jobs

Despite benefiting from public subsidies, Canada's telecom industry routinely send jobs overseas. This outsourcing contradicts the efforts of generations of Canadian telecom workers who built our community infrastructure. It's time to redirect public investments to support local telecom jobs, not offshore endeavors. Together, let's ensure a future of quality jobs in our communities.

Canada's Energy Future

Canada must create new jobs in emerging energy technology while ensuring that we maintain good jobs in oil and gas. We can have the best of both worlds.

End the Blood Ban

Despite facing a persistent shortage, Canadian Blood Services and Héma-Quebec persist in discriminatory practices, especially targeting men who have sex with men. The ban applies to all blood and tissue donations, including post-COVID plasma, and has now been expanded to include trans women without gender-affirming surgery. These policies, driven by stigma, contradict Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's commitment in 2015 to lift the ban. Unifor advocates for challenging these discriminatory practices, highlighting the importance of policies based on high-risk behaviors rather than individual characteristics. Let's unite in demanding a blood donation system that is fair and inclusive.
