Statement on Unifor’s withdrawal from the Canadian Labour Congress

The news that Canada’s largest private-sector union, Unifor, has decided to withdraw its membership from the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) has taken many by surprise.

PIPSC believes that Canada’s labour movement is always stronger together. We remain firm affiliates of the Canadian Labour Congress and will continue to work with other unions for the benefit of our own members and for all Canadian workers.

We also remain hopeful that a resolution that would allow Unifor to return to the CLC can soon be reached.

We will continue to monitor the current situation closely and communicate with our members as further information becomes available.

Better Together,

Debi Daviau
