Understanding Unifor's Membership

Strengthening our union is a collective task. It takes time - including a couple of minutes of your time - but it's worth it for our future. Please visit unifor.org/demographics to learn more about this important project and to fill out a short survey.

Speak Up to Protect Pensions

The Federal Government's Bill C-27 could undermine future rounds of bargaining in the telecommunications sector and shift liabilities of funding defined benefits plans from our employers to our retirees and active members. You can help make the government reconsider their plans by going to www.unifor.org/stopC27. That page provides more information on this issue plus a convenient link to let you email Finance Minister Bill Morneau to request that he withdraw this legislation.
