In the midst of these challenging times, we need to take some time with our families and reflect on how far we have come and the challenges our predecessors endured to fight for better working conditions in Canada.
We need to look at the future and the continued issues we face in the workplace. “We must elevate the craft, protect its interest, advance wages, reduce the hours of labour, spread correct economic doctrines and cultivate a spirit of fraternity among the working people regardless of creed, colour, nationality or politics. These principles are the foundation principles of our organization.”
Peter J. McGuire On behalf of the Executive, Members and Staff of Millwright Local 1244 have safe Labour Day weekend.
