Do unions still matter?


Many people say that Unions have outlived their usefulness. The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees says nothing could be further from the truth.

Why Unions Still Matter is an informative and enlightening presentation developed by the school of Labour Studies at McMaster University in conjunction with the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE).

Why Unions Still Matter makes the case that strong unions are an essential component of a strong and stable economy.

What’s happening to the Canadian middle class? Who acts as the safeguard to corporate power? And what role do unions have in building Canada’s future?

Every day, unions and their members are under attack.

While corporate profits and executive salaries soar, Canadian workers face disappearing pensions, increased hours and declining wages.

IATSE members who have seen this presentation have given it great reviews, and say that it explains our history and invigorates workers to be more involved in their locals and in the Union movement.

The IATSE Roadshow: Why Unions Still Matter will be in Campbell River on Sunday, May 31 at 4 p.m. at the Campbell River Community Centre, Room 1.

Everyone is welcome at this free presentation. Whether you are a union member or not, come out and learn Why Unions Still Matter.
