Your Union leadership is sending out a call for action.  If you have the time, please join our brothers and sisters in a “demand for support” for our industry.  The details for the rallies in Toronto and Montreal can be found below.

We need to be heard! This is an important time to ensure that our members are shown the respect they deserve from the Federal Government.

Aviation workers take to streets of Toronto and Montreal to demand support

Aviation workers will hold a rally and distribute leaflets and two provinces on Friday, to urge the federal government to create a national aviation recovery strategy.

Media are invited to attend the events that will feature Unifor leadership and front line workers.

“Over the past seven months we have seen a transformation in the aviation sector like no other,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. “The facts are now clear. If we want to save our aviation industry from total collapse, we need the federal government to implement an aviation strategy that focuses on workers and building the sector as a whole.”
