Health and safety standards are starkly different around the world. Trade deals signed by our government not only keep workers in other countries down, but can also hurt Canadian workers. This module examines a few of the socioeconomic and political realities of the global workforce to illustrate how poor health and safety laws around the world make it harder for us to bring positive change to workers in Canada.

In response to the health concerns of our members and staff, CUPE has implemented a Scent-Free Policy at all of our workshops. Scented products such as hair spray, perfume and deodorant can trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches. Facilitators and participants are asked to refrain from using scented products while attending our workshops and meetings. Thank you for your cooperation.
