General Manufacturing

Close to 90,000 Unifor members work in the manufacturing sector, representing about one-third of the union’s membership base. Most are assigned to specific sub-sectors (such as auto, aerospace, shipbuilding, etc.) but a large number work in a wide range of other manufacturing operations, including food and beverage processing, cabinetry, electronics, and other sectors.

Canada must retaliate against the US over aluminum tariffs

Sadly, this is the culmination of the current US administration’s stubborn refusal to understand just how important Canadian aluminum is to the US and its willingness to sacrifice jobs in both countries on behalf of special interests.
