 IAM members from LL’s 11,16,456,692,764,1857,and 2711 participated in the CLC’s Together  Fairness Works conference. The leadership from British Columbia worked on understanding the political attacks our union faces today with the current Federal Government. Delegates learned ways to plan out a communication model to ensure all IAM sisters and brothers in the province are aware of  the harmful legislation that is in design by Stephen Harper. The Fairness works Campaign is connected with the IAM Surveys that are currently going out to every IAM member in Canada.

Reverting to the Open Shop model

DOWNLOAD THE PRESENTATION. This was a presentation to the Economic Club of Canada in Ottawa and paves a path to re-creating the Open Shop in Canada

Merit Canada is the national voice of eight provincial open shop construction associations.

“The term, “open shop,” simply describes a workplace where membership or non­-membership in a union is not a condition of employment.” This means getting trying to eliminate unions, nothing less.
