President Hanley's Messages to Members:
Over the last year and half, I have been inspired by the resilience and strength of our members in the face of the pandemic.
As we mark International Women's Day, I want you to ask yourself, what kind of world do you want for your daughters, wives, mothers, sisters and loved ones?
Today as always, we continue the struggle to build a more just world for all Canadians, remembering that when workers are united and committed, we can transform our workplaces, cities and country.
