NLFL COVID-19 RESPONSE
Public money for oil and gas must come with strong, clear and stringent conditions that protects jobs, communities and, most especially, strong environmental and worker safety regulations.
We do not support a “blank-cheque” bailout for any corporation that results in bonuses for executives, dividends for shareholders or tax-avoidance through offshore tax havens. We also expect our provincial government to support these conditions in their advocacy with the federal government. To read President Mary Shortall’s entire remarks, click here.
Happy Labour Day from the NLFL!
Labour Day is a time to celebrate workers and unions. This year especially, we are reminded of the value and power of workers.
Today, the NLFL is launching our plan for a worker-centered economic recovery. This event is taking place in historic Grand Falls-Windsor, birthplace of the NLFL and home to a strong labour movement for over 100 years. As we celebrate Labour Day, we also recognize that the fight for fairness for workers is an ongoing one!
The NLFL will be launching its plan for a worker – centered economic recovery this Labour Day. We will livestream the event from historic Grand Falls-Windsor in tribute to the long history of labour activism and celebration in that community.
