Unifor calls on Liberals and NDP to work together to benefit workers

OTTAWA- Unifor is calling on the Liberal and NDP leaders to work together to implement progressive change to benefit workers.

“In this election Canadians didn’t endorse any one party, instead opting for MPs to continue to work together in a minority parliament.” said Unifor National President Jerry Dias. “I’m asking Justin Trudeau and Jagmeet Singh to cut through the politics and agree on mutual priorities so government can act quickly to strengthen our economy and the services that Canadians depend upon.”

Union members are well versed in democracy, practiced through union and workplace elections.
