SOAR International Executive Board Goes to Washington!

Four Canadian SOAR Board members joined with SOAR delegates to the Rapid Response conference in Washington, DC to lobby US House Representatives and Senators on issues important to working people and the USW on both sides of the border.

The Canadian Board members played a full part as delegates with USW District 1 on lobbying, speaking up eloquently and passionately from a Canadian perspective on all of the issues, namely Improving the new NAFTA 2, the Butch Lewis Act of 2019 (S.2254), Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act (HR 2474/S.1306) and Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act (HR 1309/S.851).

We have since been advised that the US HOUSE of Representatives adopted with overwhelming bi-partisan support (HR 1309) on Nov 11, 2019. All in all a very successful and educational experience .
