Prairies on Patrol

The recent labour disputes with CUPW and CAW have shown frightening new trends in bargaining that include a relentless attack on our retirement security and hard-earned health benefits, and a government that is all too willing to introduce back-to-work legislation if their corporate friends are inconvenienced.

We need to shape public opinion on the impact of cuts to public services on Canadian families and communities, and mobilize our members for what will be a long fight. But we need your help. Let us know about cuts in your workplaces and how they are affecting you and your coworkers. Together, the Prairie Region is on patrol for government cuts and injustices in the workplace.
