Build Back Better Summer Summit
From August 19 to 21, 2020, we’ll be holding the Unifor Summer Summit, an online forum to allow us to connect and strategize on what comes next for workers after the pandemic.
This summit will include a combination of live broadcast events and closed regional and equity forums. But don’t worry, you won’t be in front of your computer for three days!
During the Event
You can participate on Facebook by commenting, asking questions, and sharing the live feed with your friends.
