What's New: Building Decent Jobs from the Ground Up
| October 6, 2016
The Workers Action Centre (Toronto) has released a response to the Changing Workplace Review Interim Report together with Parkdale Community Legal Services. This new report calls for sweeping reforms to our labour laws that are creating precarious and low waged work. The Ministry of Labour’s Changing Workplace Review is the biggest review of our employment laws in over two decades. The appointed Special Advisors have identified the main areas where reforms are needed to deal with precarious working conditions.
What's New: Class struggle in China
| October 6, 2016
China has been the fastest growing major economy in the world for three decades. It is also home to some of the largest, most incendiary, and most under-reported labour struggles of our time. Hao Ren and Fan Gang are two activists in this burgeoning labour movement. They both organize with workers to take collective action in defense of their rights and income.
Bullet #1311: Unpacking CETA
by Peter Rossman | October 5, 2016
The Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), like other looming mega-treaties, is a comprehensive vehicle for expanding the scope of transnational investment by rolling back the capacity of governments to regulate in the public interest. The attack on democratic governance is not restricted to the notorious Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) mechanism, which privileges transnational capital by creating a parallel legal system exclusive to transnational investors. The invasive claims of transnational investors permeate the entire treaty.

| October 4, 2016
CUPW has always been at the forefront of the labour movement. Because we push the envelope, we get pushed back at too. Under the austerity agenda, postal workers are often the first to come under fire. Let’s take that as a compliment – a recognition of the strength of our fighting union! Now we are taking a stand for pay equity, while resisting the boss's demands for major cuts to what we already have.
What's New: Greece: A Country for Sale
by Eleni Portaliou | October 4, 2016
The most persistent myth concerning Syriza’s capitulation to the troika is that it was a 'forced choice.' To put it differently, 'there was no alternative' to signing a third memorandum, given an extremely unfavorable balance of forces at a European and international level. This is the only seemingly rational argument Tsipras and his followers have been able to produce defending their actions. The story, however, doesn’t end here.

|: Confronting the State: Dissent and Advocacy in Healthcare|
A far-reaching conversation with Dr. Philip Berger, Medical Director, Inner City Health Program, St. Michael’s Hospital
Dissent, advocacy and a citizen’s responsibility have historically played a pivotal role in bringing about social and political changes. We are delighted to have Dr. Berger share with us 40 years of experience, which show how health care workers can confront and remedy inequities and unfairness in the health care system.
Monthly thematic Conversation Circles are organized by volunteer labour, supported by the Seeds of Hope Foundation, to generate discussion on issues of interest to wider Danforth neighbourhood under thematic topics.
