In recent months, the gaps in our society have become more noticeable than ever.
Women, young people and marginalized communities are more likely to be jobless, earn low wages, or work in unsafe precarious jobs.
They have been impacted the most by COVID and the economic crisis.
Unions play an important role in making work and society more equal for everyone.
Let’s work towards an inclusive, gendered economic recovery plan, with quality public services, where no one is left behind.
A message from CUPE Newfoundland and Labrador.
NLFL President Mary Shortall hosted the event and launched the plan for a “worker-centred economic recovery” plan.
“It is workers who have built strong economies and will continue to do so, and their unions that have contributed to greater equality and fairness in workplaces and society,” says Shortall. “Without an economic recovery that is focused on working people, fairness and equality, we will not see the strong sustained recovery that we need and deserve.”
Happy Labour Day!
