Something To Celebrate On Labour Day

These are basic Canadian values, and they are Unifor values. So it is no coincidence that this new and dynamic union was founded this Labour Day weekend.

As we built the groundwork for Unifor, through an incredible two-year process of grassroots involvement and consultation, we asked our members what kind of a new union they wanted.  And they were very clear.

They want a modern, accountable, democratic and progressive union.  They want us to fight for equality and inclusion.  They want a union that communicates effectively and listens as well as it speaks.

They want a union that is inclusive.  Our members are women, men, white, gay, straight, aboriginal, disabled, workers of colour.  We will be a union that takes its responsibility to fight racism and discrimination.

And that's just the kind of union we're building now.

Unifor will work hand-in-hand with other organizations and other unions, with businesses, with governments and community groups to build good lives and secure jobs for our children.

We will find new ways to organize those who cannot find a voice right now - the unemployed, the non-unionized, young workers who are going from bad job to bad job, the self-employed and anyone else who believes positive change is possible.

Together, we can do this - we can make changes in your workplace that help you in your life and your community, however you define it.

Have a good Labour Day weekend, and know you've got a strong new ally in fulfilling your hopes for the future.
