The Road Map
The public health response to the coronavirus pandemic has led to the most severe economic downturn in at least 60 years.
Rebuilding the economy will take an equally unprecedented effort.
It is tempting to want to return to the status quo, and to think that a return to before would be a relief, but there were numerous crises raging before the pandemic took hold that will likely worsen if nothing is done. Income inequality, an inadequate social safety net and climate change are just three of the crises that must be addressed.
More than simply returning to what was, it is imperative that Canada redesign its economic programs, its social infrastructure and public services to build an inclusive, fairer and more resilient economy.
Investing in workers’ shared prosperity, not in private profits, must be the government's objective.
Who We Are
Unifor is Canada's largest union in the private sector, representing 315,000 workers in every major area of the economy.
The union advocates for all working people and their rights, fights for equality and social justice in Canada and abroad, and strives to create progressive change for a better future.
Unifor brings a modern approach to unionism: adopting new tools, involving and engaging our members, and always looking for new ways to develop the role and approach of our union to meet the demands of the 21st century.
Every person of working age in Canada has a right to a good job and the benefits of economic progress.
Unifor presents this plan in June 2020, three months after the novel coronavirus arrived in Canada, at a time when restrictions on movement, activities and business operations are beginning to lift, but infection rates and illness continue to grow.
