Statement from Mark Hancock and Charles Fleury reacting to the disaffiliation of Unifor from the CLC

It is regrettable that earlier today Unifor announced it will disaffiliate from the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC). CUPE firmly believes a united house of labour is much stronger than a divided one.

Trade unionists have always been stronger when we work together, and CUPE and the rest of the CLC’s affiliates will continue to work together to defend our members’ interests and build a better society for all.

It is our view that whatever difficulties led to Unifor leaving the CLC should not be insurmountable ones, and we encourage their leadership to sit down with representatives of the CLC and try to work out those differences, for the good of the labour movement.

As the implications of this decision become known over the coming days, CUPE will be steadfast in our resolve to represent our members, organize unorganized workers, and defend a strong, united labour movement.
