Long-term care rallies are set to make some noise during the month of May across Ontario, sending the message loud and clear to all political parties to respect health care workers, stop putting profit over people and to repeal the shameful Bill 124.

Lana Payne

To help workers fight rising costs, we need to empower them to add cost-of-living-adjustments, COLA clauses, to their union contracts, and make it easier for more workers to unionize, Lana Payne writes in the Toronto Star.

Register today for Unifor's fourth constitutional convention where we will gather and set a course for the future of our union, including electing new national officers.


Labour Market Cover

Read this month’s labour market insights: Unemployment rate hit a new historic low for April, decreasing slightly to 5.2%, with another 15,300 jobs added to the labour market. The national unemployment rate has now fallen for three consecutive months.
