Quotes

"This is a good way to do things. If someone wants to change it in the future, great. But we weren't changing it this year because I'd rather save the taxpayers of P E I money" said Ghiz who is host and chaiman of the meeting
But Yussuff says labour advocacy goes beyond strictly workplace issues. "We push elected officials at all levels to provide a broad range of family-supporting public programs and services. For example, every Canadian should have a decent pension to retire on and that's why we are working to convince governments to improve Canada Pension Plan benefits. We do this in the interest of creating fairness and when we succeed we raise the bar for everyone."
But, she stressed, the local United Way does "work with companies and their employees, many of whom are members of the United Steel Workers Union, OPSEU and other labour unions."
"I'm hopeful between now and Sunday we'll have a common understanding of what we need to do collectively to try and regain some control over this country and how we can work with each other."
