The delegates at the Unifor convention Sunday voted unanimously to accept the policy paper that outlines the new union’s vision for the future.
Delegates were presented with the paper “A New Union for a Challenging World: Unifor’s Vision and Plan.”
Introduced by Fred Wilson and Jim Stanford, the paper details the six main strategies for Unifor: building the union; organizing; bargaining effectively; defending labour rights; taking our voice to the community and politics; and building the labour movement.
Delegates spoke about how important the paper was and the need for using the visions and strategies to fight back against the attacks on the labour movement. Fred Wilson noted that, “How we respond to this fight is critical for our future. Labour rights are, in fact, human rights.”
