Thousands of CAW and CEP members rallied in downtown Toronto


 In a rousing display of what Unifor will become, members marched in Toronto on August 30 in support of Canadian telecommunications jobs.

Speakers Dave Coles, CEP National President; Ken Lewenza, CAW National President; Marc Rousseau, Local 6001; Michelle Arruda, President , Local 6004; and Dylan Gadwa, Local 2000, called on the federal government to stop giving preferential treatment to US giants such as Verizon.

Less than a week later, Verizon announced that it was abandoning plans to come into Canada.
