Economic Action Issues and Campaigns
- Retirement Security For Everyone We have a pension crisis in Canada: not enough money is being directed towards pensions to provide for Canadians.
- Improving Employment Insurance
- USW Letter to Premier Dalton McGuinty on compensation freeze In a letter to Premier Dalton McGuinty, the USW says it is prepared to support reasonable efforts to bring the provincial budget back into balance, but not an across-the-board compensation freeze, which – contrary to the government’s professed intention – would be certain to impact vital public services.
- USW Update: Ontario's Public-Sector Compensation Freeze USW is not accepting the Ontario government’s proposed compensation freeze. As our collective agreements expire, we are proposing compensation improvements and negotiating with individual employers. However, we would welcome the opportunity to propose fiscal alternatives that would save more money than a compensation freeze.
