People’s trade town hall – Hamilton

Friday, April 20, 2018 - 17:30

This is a community town hall to discuss an issue that impacts all of us – trade. Everyone is welcome to join the conversation as Unifor re-imagines what a People’s Trade agenda might look like.

Please register in advance.

Hear from Maude Barlow, Council of Canadians Honorary Chairperson

Canadians deserve to have a voice in the development of trade policy. We need to set the rules for what trade should achieve and how trade should work for us - not just for corporations. Join us for an important community conversation as we discuss and develop a People’s Trade Agenda, together.

Over the course of 2018, Unifor will hold a series of open town halls in communities all across Canada and Quebec to talk about how trade has directly impacted our lives and how we can imagine it working differently.

If you want to find out more about Unifor’s People’s Trade campaign check out our campaign page here.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
