Bruske: Labour movement will aggressively defend the right of every worker to join or form a union.

OTTAWA–– The Canadian Labour Congress will convene representatives of millions of workers from across Canada Thursday to discuss how they will advance the rights of workers.

Bea Bruske, President of the Canadian Labour Congress, will lead the Council’s discussion and make an announcement about the Canadian Football League Players’ Association.

“Representatives of millions of workers will gather in Ottawa this week ready to deliver a clear message to politicians of every stripe: if you want our votes, you must respect and enhance our rights. Not with pretty words, but concrete action,” warned Bruske. “The labour movement is growing. We will be releasing new polling showing how, more and more, Canadians are behind us. People are looking to us to make it easier to join a union and harder for employers to obstruct workers from organizing.”

“Canadians understand – the best ticket to the middle class is to have a union card in your back pocket.”
