LiUNA applauds the election of The Trudeau Liberal Government

TORONTOOct. 21, 2015 /CNW/ - For close to ten years, Canadians have been subjected to an anti-union Conservative Government under the draconian leadership of Stephen Harper. Earlier this year, the Harper Government dissolved Parliament and passed the most regressive, anti-worker, anti-union piece of legislation, threatening to destroy collective bargaining rights for unions acrossCanada and attacking hard working middle class families. However, today Canadians have spoken clearly and unequivocally. They have cast their ballots for a leader who understands middle class families and the importance of unions and labour in Canada.

 

LiUNA International Vice President and Regional Manager for Central and Eastern CanadaJoseph Mancinelli stated, "On behalf of the over 100,000 members of the Labourers' International Union of North America across Canada, I would like to congratulate Prime Minister-elect Justin Trudeau and his team on this historic victory. Throughout the campaign Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party delivered a well-defined message, listened to the sentiments and concerns of all Canadians, and worked hard to ensure strong voter turnout, in fact one of the largest voter turnouts since 1993. Under the Trudeau leadership, LiUNA looks forward to continued growth and vitality for our progressive country led by increased infrastructure initiatives and employment opportunities from coast to coast."

 

LiUNA is proud of the outstanding efforts made by all candidates throughout this historic 78 day election campaign. Adds Jack Oliveira, Business Manager of the LiUNA Ontario Provincial Council "LiUNA wishes to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of all candidates, campaign teams and volunteers for bringing real change to Canada. LiUNA is proud of the outstanding efforts and focused leadership of the Liberal Party and we look forward to working together with the Trudeau Government on many initiatives for a promising future for all Canadians." 

 

Canadians have chosen change over conformity and voted for the return to a country of hope and prosperity, and with the Trudeau Government in place Canada will swiftly be back on its rightful path. For over one hundred years the hardworking members of the Labourers' International Union of North America have built our communities and have helped form Canada. LiUNA looks forward to working together with the Trudeau Liberal government in ensuring Canada is the best country to work and to live.

A MESSAGE FROM JOSEPH S. MANCINELLI

LiUNA International Vice President and Regional Manager


Welcome to the LiUNA Central and Eastern Canada Region!
I have been a proud member of the Labourers' International Union of North America for over thirty-seven years; a union with a rich history advocating for worker's rights across North America. LiUNA is a union that strives first and foremost for the needs of our members and their families, focusing on job creation, better wages and safer working conditions, building better futures, together.
LiUNA provides members with innovative skilled training, negotiating the best salaries and benefits, and pride ourselves on our strong 'no-strike' record. At LiUNA we work for our members remaining positive, proactive and progressive.
Brothers and Sisters, today is a very important time in LiUNA's History. Canadians have a new Federal Government in place who understand the importance of putting significant resources into re-building and building new infrastructure projects. With an increased focus on infrastructure by our Governments, we have a collective duty to grow our local unions and to ensure many good paying jobs for LiUNA members across North America. We will continue to strengthen our great membership through collective agreements, not only for infrastructure projects, but major roads, highways, and subways whether ICI or residential.We have the most productive and safest construction workforce in the country which is credit to LIUNA'a investment in skills training and health & safety. As of 2015, LiUNA has one of the Top Ten fastest growing Multi-Employer Pension Plans in Canada, and we will continue to strengthen this great organization  to ensure LiUNA members have a voice and have a better future.
The basic principles of unionism are LiUNA's day-to-day mantra. it is important to be protected, it is important to have a voice and it is important to be heard. LiUNA, Feel the Power!
