The CLC has just released a study of 29 Canadian communities showing that on average unionized workers in Canada earn $5.11 an hour more than do non union workers. Everybody benefits from union wages: workers, their communities and small businesses. We need your help to tell Finance Minister Jim Flaherty about that. He’s just met in private with Canadian CEOs. In a similar meeting last year they told him to cut wages, introduce American style right-to-work laws and raise the retirement age. The Minister is getting bad advice. Help us to tell him he should commit to inviting labour and to community-based organizations in any such future meetings.
