Appuyez les travailleuses et travailleurs chez Target! Corrigez le régime d'assurance-emploi!

Joignez vous aux nombreuses voix demandant au ministre fédéral de l’Emploi et du Développement social, Jason Kenney, de prendre des mesures d’urgence pour accorder un accès à l’assurance-emploi aux travailleuses et travailleurs chez Target qui ne pourront y être admissibles autrement. En raison du seuil élevé d’admissibilité fixé à 910 heures sur une période de 52 semaines, plusieurs travailleuses et travailleurs chez Target ne recevront pas les prestations d’assurance-emploi au moment où ils en ont le plus besoin.

Support Target workers! Fix EI!

Take a moment to lend your support to Target workers. Join the chorus calling on federal Minister of Employment and Social Development Jason Kenney to take emergency measures to grant access to Employment Insurance to Target workers who wouldn’t otherwise qualify. Because of the high qualifying threshold of up to 910 hours over 52 weeks, many Target workers will not receive EI when they need it most.

Take action to stop Bill 377

Strong democracies and workers’ rights require strong unions.
The Conservative government’s Bill 377 is an attempt to weaken unions and undermine workers’ rights.

Justice for Injured Workers

The workers’ compensation system in Ontario has been deteriorating and continues to get worse. As a result many workers are suffering problems with the workers’ compensation system (WSIB); many are not reporting injuries and experience even more severe injuries as a result. Many others are claiming disability benefits rather than filing compensation claims.

Extend Special EI Measures, Support Laid-Off Workers!

The Employment Insurance (EI) program is of critical importance to working Canadians, particularly in the face of the current economic recession. 

 

The CAW and the FFAW are current campaigning for the federal government to act immediately to extend these budget measures and EI pilot projects to ensure vital EI support for laid-off workers remains intact across the country.

 

You can help with this vital campaign!
