Community hearings continue across the country on the disastrous impact of the changes made to Unemployment Insurance by the federal Liberals. With support from the CLC, MP Yvon Godin, the NDP UI critic, has been travelling across the country gathering information on the impact of the cuts. His findings will be included in a report to Parliament.
CUPE locals are encouraged to participate in hearings, telling the stories of the impact on our members and their families. For further information, call the CLC contact listed below.
