Did you hear? We won!

The Canary took home a Canadian Association of Labour Media award for excellence in news writing. CUPE’s flagship publication (and Canary’s sister publication) Counterpoint won the big prize: best overall publication. We’re proud to bring you quality health and safety news, and we’re honoured to receive this award.

In the latest issue of The Canary we cover the Day of Mourning, marked by CUPE members across the country this past April 28. Troy Winters explains the importance of honouring those we’ve lost, while continuing the fight to protect the living.

We also feature developments in the Westario power tragedy, and update you about new ergonomics standards from the CSA that you can use in your workplace.

Plus, the weather’s starting to heat up, so this edition’s safe@work covers heat stress, and what you can do to make sure you’re protected.

Don’t forget to check out our special Canary Online feature on the 20th anniversary of the tragic Westray disaster. After 20 years and major changes to the law, are we any safer at work?
