Labour Lobbies Ottawa!

Activists including Susan Sutherland (second from right) met with NDP leader Jagmeet Singh.

LL2797’s Susan Sutherland headed to Ottawa on February 25th to join the Canadian Labour Congress’ lobbying efforts on Parliament Hill.

Labour representatives and activists from all over Canada lobbied our politicians to create a National Pharmacare Program; establish a $15 federal minimum wage; secure workplaces against violence and harassment; and protect workers and pensioners when employers file for bankruptcy. In total, we had 378 participants meet with 184 MPs and Senators.

Way to go!
