Federal public sector unions are joining forces to challenge an unprecedented assault on collective bargaining and workplace health and safety by the Conservative government.

Conservative Senator Hugh Segal on why unions are important

On December 7, Conservative Senator Hugh Segal addressed Unifor's Ontario Regional Council. He began: "My Canada is the kind of country where trade unions and free collective bargaining makes our economy stronger and Canada a better place. It is as important a part of a strong and growing economy as capital investment, reasonable profits, and fair wages. And without collective bargaining there is never any guarantee on fair wages. And without fair wages we are not building a society of which we can be proud, and we can transfer to our kids and grandchildren knowing we have transferred them something that reflects our values as Canadians.
