Unifor’s holiday message hand-delivered to MPs in iPolitics magazine


All Unifor wants this season is for the federal government to cooperate and get the important things done. Why not start with the commitments you have in common?   

That’s Unifor’s message to Prime Minister Trudeau, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh and all MPs and Senators, hand-delivered as a feature in this quarter’s iPolitics print magazine. 

Workers in Canada need a reliable, stable government to deliver on the shared goals that were set out in the 2021 federal election.

The ad outlines some common platform commitments that can be quickly implemented to support workers and their families.

Liberal platform commitments

  • Prohibit the use of replacement workers, “scabs”
  • 10 paid sick days
  • Deliver $10 a day child care within five years or less

NDP Platform commitments

  • Prioritize anti-scab legislation that will ban the use of replacement workers in labour dispute
  • 10 paid sick days
  • Build a universal $10/day child care system

Canada’s workers need a federal government where progressive parties come together behind a fair and equitable vision for the future- to pass and implement the policies and programs we need to get us there.

Unifor’s December 2021 iPolitics ad asks PM Trudeau and NDP leader Singh to cooperate.
