1) UNIFOR GOOD JOBS SUMMIT: TRIPARTISM ON DISPLAY

 

By Stuart Ryan, Ottawa

 

            Unifor, formed by the merger of the Canadian Auto Workers and the Communication, Energy and Paperworkers Union, has highlighted three themes since its inception: a) it is time to take the offensive in its labour relations with employers; b) being a union for everyone with its new ways of organizing in non‑traditional sectors, with models like Community Chapters; and c) reaching out to communities to create good, secure and well‑paying unionized jobs.

 

            National President Jerry Dias has highlighted the need to address the crisis of unemployment and the growth of precarious, temporary or contract jobs. Since neither government or business was doing so, the Good Jobs Summit was held October 3‑5 in Toronto. Dias invited several partners to help Unifor organize the event: the Canadian Federation of Students; the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (Ontario); Ryerson University and its Institutes, the Sam Gindin Centre for Social Justice and Democracy, and the Centre for Labour‑Management Relations. . . .

 

2) GREETINGS TO HOSPITAL EMPLOYEES UNION

 

Greetings to the 29th Biennial Convention of the Hospital Employees Union, from the BC Labour Bureau of the Communist Party of Canada

 

            The Communist Party of Canada extends greetings to the Hospital Employees' Union at its 29th Biennial Convention, and on the occasion of the HEU's 70th anniversary. Your union has a proud historic record of defending the interests of workers in the health care sector, and fighting to achieve equality gains for women and other groups. Our party stands in full solidarity with the HEU in its struggle against endless attacks on public services such as health care, and on health care unions and on their members, by big business and the governments that serve the corporate drive to privatize, contract out, and smash the union movement. We also support the HEU in opposing raids and divisions which only benefit the employers. . . .

 

 

3) WORKERS UNITED STRIKES IN GUELPH AGAINST TWO-TIER SYSTEMS

 

People's Voice Guelph Bureau

 

            Nowadays, the vast majority of workers across Canada are witnessing the erosion of long‑fought human rights, including vacations, pensions and overtime, in addition to decreased health and safety conditions at workplaces. Time after time, workers have been forced to make concessions, in spite of these prosperous times for companies. High profits have not been translated into labour investment and facility improvements; instead, the profits are increasingly transferred to overseas corporations.

 

            This seems to be the case for Tokyo-based Nippon Sheet Glass. For the year ending March 31 2014, the company showed profits of 606 billion yen, or over $6.2 billion (Annual Report 2014, page 3). The Guelph division of NGF Canada makes rubber‑coated glass cords for racing car tires, and was bought by NSG in 1995 from the Owens Corning group. After several years of concessions around wages and benefits, workers at the Guelph factory decided to defend what they had. . . .
