JOBS! JOBS! JOBS!


http://www.unifor199.org/pdf/jobsjobsjobs.pdfCanada’s labour Market has ground to a halt; there has been virtually no full-time job creation in the past year. The Government claims Canada’s economy is the best in the World, but that isn’t supported by the hard evidence. Austerity has hurt the underlying problem, not helped.   To solve the problem, we need a different approach: all stakeholders, Government, Business, Labour, Universities, Colleges, & communities, all need to elevate good paying job creation to the top of the list of policy priorities. We need to take pro-active measures (not just lay out a welcome mat for business) to make it happen. www.unifor199.org/pdf/jobsjobsjobs.pdf

Municipal Candidate Endorsement Meeting


Monday, September 15, 2014
7:00 pm
City of Thorold, Town Hall
3540 Schmon Parkway
Thorold.


The upcoming municipal, regional and trustee elections in Niagara are of paramount importance for all union members, their families and friends. We need to elect progressive candidates  who will support labour's vision for our communities. 
Over the past 8 months, the Municipality Matters Committee made up of members from affiliated and non-affiliated locals have met on a regular basis. All candidates ( over 300) have received the candidate's questionnaire.  Based on the responses and interviews, the committee will present at the Municipal Candidate Endorsement  Meeting their recommendations of candidates to be considered for endorsement.

Please note that, based on a decision ye of the Niagara Regional Labour Council, the Municipal Candidate Endorsement Meeting to be held next Monday, September 15th, will now be a Special Meeting of the NRLC.   Thus, voting will be by NRLC delegates only.   However, representatives of all locals affiliated with the CLC are still most welcome to attend.
