Austerity and disability: Opposing Bill 83

A bill passed second reading in the Ontario Legislature on Oct. 28, a bill that is a clear danger to the labour movement's ability to win fair contracts and defend public services. Bill 83, which essentially outlaws picketing outside of group homes that are housing people with intellectual and other disabilities that require home care.

Mediation fails, Nova Scotia's Bill 1 moves to arbitration

Photo: Unifor Atlantic

After weeks in mediation, a settlement could not be reached between Nova Scotia's four health-care unions and acute care employers.

With the help of mediator James Dorsey, the talks intended to help the parties involved reach consensus on how to accommodate Bill 1.

The legislation, introduced by the Liberal government on October 3, will amalgamate the province's health district authorities. By reducing the number of bargaining units in acute care from 49 contracts to four contracts, the Bill will re-assign union members to unions not necessarily of their choosing.

We need to talk about pensions with upcoming generations

How many times have we talked to our children, grandchildren, friends and neighbours about the issue of pensions, only to get the deer in the headlights look? I believe that it is one of the duties of those around the age of retirement to reach out to younger people about the importance of preparing for retirement. We know that Stephen Harper is doing all he can to make the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) unsustainable and to make people work longer to receive the benefits.
