What’s the deal with snow removal in PEI? Unionized provincial workers have been replaced by private contractors in at least one municipality, how are these decisions made and is it just one more step in the war on working people by conservative governments?

Air Canada and Westjet are asking us to stop testing for COVID-19 at the airport while omicron is ravaging us. They can spin it all they like, it’s bad for public health.

Then, we’re joined in the CUPE Ontario Union Hall by Ontario School Board Council of Unions President Laura Walton who represents thousands and thousands of workers in schools who are deeply concerned with the safety of a return to in person learning while the Ford government has abandoned common sense. What can we do to fight back?
