We stand with all those fighting for their basic rights in the wake of this devastating decision from the U.S. Supreme Court.

Taking away peoples’ reproductive health rights is wrong.

And as Liz Shuler says, will impact poor & racialized communities the most.

L’ a été publié et l'inflation a augmenté de 7,7% depuis 12 mois. Plus forte hausse en près de 40 ans.
Les gouv. doivent atténuer les effets sur les plus vulnérables, et s'assurer que les profiteurs paient leur juste part. congresdutravail.ca/syndicats-du-c…

Workers can't be expected to pay for inflation while corporations grow richer from profiteering & price gouging. This week, Bay St. bankers are making the push for austerity, admonishing govt measures that are meant to ease the pain experienced by households.

The numbers are out & consumer inflation rose 7.7% year over year. The largest increase in almost 40 years.

Govts must cushion the blow on the most vulnerable & make sure profiteers driving up prices pay their fair share canadianlabour.ca/canadas-unions…

Le cri du coeur de l'équipage de ce vol Pivot, dont 2 membres du SCFP. Ils ont bloqué l'importation de 200kg de drogue au Canada, mais restent détenus en République dominicaine depuis 2 mois au risque de leur vie.

Pourquoi Justin Trudeau tarde à agir?

A Canadian crew stopped 200kg of cocaine from entering the country, and prevented a likely air disaster. Now their lives are at risk in the Dominican Republic.

It’s time for Justin Trudeau to step-up.

We can't forget what was found on the grounds at Kamloops residential school – it was just the beginning. Tanya Talaga writes beautiful about a painful past that non-Indigenous peoples in this country have a duty to address. theglobeandmail.com/canada/article…

Women bore the brunt of this pandemic.
More likely to lose their job, more likely to take on unpaid labour.

Our friends The CCPA are tracking women's economic recovery - see how far we still have to go.

More workers overcoming a fierce anti-union campaign from a giant corp to form a union – and ensure their collective voices are heard.

👏 Congrats to these young workers for breaking new ground at U.S. retail stores. huffpost.com/entry/apple-st…
