Securing an inclusive, equitable and resilient employment insurance program for workers in Canada
Lobbying for Employment Insurance Reform has been ongoing since late, 2021. Representatives from Local 2002 had the opportunity to Lobby MP’s and push for adoption of recommendations that are part of Unifor’s ongoing Build Back Better campaign.

Build Back Better
Last November, Unifor sent a letter to the Prime Minister's Office notifying that Unifor is prepared to work together with hotel employers, industry groups, the broader labour movement, provincial and federal governments, Indigenous communities, representatives from other hard-hit sectors, and other stakeholders, to build a comprehensive, strategic, and inclusive recovery plan for the hospitality sector. Canada needs a Build Back Better plan which leaves no sector behind when we come out of this pandemic.

Any recovery strategy must focus on three main pillars:
- An industry-specific corporate support package that ensures benefits flow through workers and communities.
- An updated approach to border controls that is rigorous, safe and reflects scientific evidence; and
- Continued government support programs for furloughed employees until recovery is secured.
Unifor has put forward a document entitled: "Planning for a Stronger and More Resilient Future, A National Aviation Recovery Plan for Canada’s Aviation Industry" which explains the three main pillars identified above.

Act now to support Canada’s Aerospace Workers
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to keep global aircraft fleets grounded, sending Canada’s aerospace manufacturing sector into a tailspin. The federal government has not implemented any industry-wide measures to protect aerospace workers as thousands face layoffs and an increasingly uncertain future.
Unifor members must act now and call on all Members of Parliament to immediately implement Unifor’s national recovery plan for Canada’s aerospace sector to protect thousands of workers in this critical industry.
