TORONTO, Feb. 11, 2014 /CNW/ - Unifor, Canada's largest union in the
private sector, will be responding to the federal budget after it is
unveiled at 4 p.m. ET this afternoon.
Unifor National President Jerry Dias will be available for comment.
"Today, we're looking for real measures in the budget that help create
decent full-time jobs," said Dias. "So far the government's record on
the jobs front has been poor at best, as we saw from the few jobs
created last year."
Unifor was founded Labour Day weekend 2013 with the joining together of
the Canadian Auto Workers and the Communications, Energy and
Paperworkers unions. Unifor represents 300,000 members in nearly every
sector of the economy.
