THOMPSON, Manitoba, Sept. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CLC President Bea Bruske will be in Thompson, Manitoba as part of the CLC’s election tour.
On Wednesday, Bruske will join other labour leaders and volunteers to campaign in support of Churchill-Keewatinook Aski MP, Niki Ashton.
“Women suffered the most severe effects of the pandemic. Bruske stated that the pandemic recovery must address women’s economic justice, and address growing inequality by investing in child-care and replacing lost jobs. “Canada’s unions are campaigning in support of candidates who have a plan to invest in pharmacare and affordable housing, to make life more affordable for everyone.”
The pandemic not only revealed how frontline workers keep our country going, it also revealed the deep inequalities that existed in Canada, even before COVID-19. Canada’s unions are touring the country to challenge all candidates to agree to an equitable recovery that places workers at their cente. With the federal election underway,
Niki Ashton has been a champion of women’s issues at federal level during her time as an MP and has a track record of her dedication to workers and their families,” stated Bruske. “We stand with Niki, who supports disaster-proofing our social safety net and who will make sure no workers are left behind.”
