Northern Pulp needs leadership now

The Nova Scotia government has a responsibility to the people of Pictou County, and all Nova Scotians, to bring stakeholders together and ease tensions around the Northern Pulp mill and its future in the province. The company is in the essential stages of creating a new on-site effluent treatment facility but survey boats have been blocked from conducting scientific impact studies. This work must proceed in order to update the mill, clean Boat Harbour, and support the thousands of forestry jobs across the province. We need your support to tell Premier McNeil and his government to take a leadership role and bring the community together.

OMERS: Vote to Protect My Pension

OMERS is one of the country's largest defined-benefit pension plans. Recently, there have been proposed changes to the plan regarding early retirement, the discount rate, inflation indexing and accrual rates. These changes would put early retirement plans in jeopardy for many plan members and have the potential to greatly lower monthly retirement payouts. Sign now to tell the OMERS Board of Directors to vote to protect your pension!

Ships Stay Here

KEEP THE HALIFAX-CLASS WORK IN HALIFAX

Representatives from the federal government have recently made comments suggesting they plan to move some of the Halifax-class navy ship repair work from the Irving Shipyard to Davie Shipyard in Quebec.

The loss of this work would be a loss for the Nova Scotian economy and for families across the province.

Unifor members at Marine Workers Federation Local 1 are proud shipbuilders and need our support. Unifor has worked with Irving Shipbuilding to diversify this workplace, training women, African Nova Scotians and Indigenous men and women to become expert shipbuilders. We’ve built and are continuing to support a vibrant workplace where more than 900 Unifor members are building their futures alongside the future of the Royal Canadian Navy.

Share your support for the workers at the Halifax Shipyard and tell your Member of Parliament: SHIPS STAY HERE
