IAMAW Canada – Anti-Scab legislation closer to becoming law!

On Tuesday Bill C-58 anti-scab legislation restricting the use of replacement workers during a strike or lockout passed second reading in the House of Commons, moving it one step closer to becoming law.

While this is certainly an important day for workers in across Canada, there is still work to be done. The IAM calls for all Members of Parliament to work together to strengthen the bill by addressing the exemptions and loopholes evident in the bill’s current form. We need to pass legislation and restore fairness and equity in the Collective Bargaining process for workers in federally-regulated industries without further delay.

IAMAW Canada – February is Black History Month – Digital Toolkit

The theme for Black History Month 2024 is Black Excellence: A Heritage to Celebrate; a Future to Build. Join us back here in February to check out our digital toolkit and more.

Every February, people across Canada participate in Black History Month events and festivities that honour the legacy of Black people in Canada and their communities.

The 2023 theme for Black History Month is: “Ours to tell”. This theme represents both an opportunity to engage in open dialogue and a commitment to learning more about the stories Black communities in Canada have to tell about their histories, successes, sacrifices and triumphs.

No matter where you live, we invite all Canadians to learn more about these communities, and how they continue to help shape Canadian history.
