Bullet #1289: Work Life: What's At Stake At Canada Post?

by David Camfield | August 5, 2016

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) is currently engaged in collective bargaining with Canada Post. Unlike in previous rounds, the contracts of both the Urban bargaining unit (covering about 42,000 workers) and the unit of some 8,000 Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers are being negotiated simultaneously. This is a rare case of a public sector union not only trying to defend its past gains but also to change the nature of the work its members do.

What's New: Inside the Corporate Utopias Where Capitalism Rules and Labor Laws Don't Apply

by Matt Kennard and Claire Provost | August 4, 2016

Under Cambodian law, the right to organize is supposed to be ironclad. No employer, government agent or citizen may impede union activity. Inside the walls of Cambodia’s largest special economic zones (SEZs), however, In These Times’ reporters saw a system designed to tightly control the workforce by keeping workers fenced in and unions out. More than a dozen workers and labor activists confirmed that, while it's not easy to independently organize anywhere in Cambodia, the law is flagrantly violated in SEZs. The result is seething discontent.

What's New: Electoral Reform

| August 4, 2016

CUPE members voiced their support for proportional representation when they voted to adopt Strategic Directions 2015-2017 at the 2015 national convention. Now we must work together to turn that support into action. Together we can build a better democracy.

What's New: Working While Black: Demographics and Destiny

by Marc Bayard | August 4, 2016

The Black and Brown revolution is coming. People of color will be a majority of the American working class by 2032, according to a new study released by the Washington D.C.-based Economic Policy Institute (EPI). That is just 16 years from now, or four presidential elections away. Fifty years ago this working class population shift would have been impossible for some people to imagine. Now a Black and Brown America is becoming everyone’s reality. Let that truth sink in for a second.

Bullet #1288: Thousands to Meet in Montreal for World Social Forum

by Pierre Beaudet | August 3, 2016

Thousands of people from over 95 countries are expected to gather in Montreal on August 9-14 for a social movement summit called the World Social Forum. Participants will spend a week attending a great variety of workshops, lectures and cultural events – more than 1200 in total. Famed author Naomi Klein will be giving two talks that are sure to be among the highlights of this unique event, which is designed to allow social activists and scholars to grapple with a host of economic, social, environmental and cultural questions facing the contemporary world.

What's New: Pension funds investing in privatization of infrastructure

by Kevin Skerrett | August 2, 2016

The federal government’s March 22 budget made one thing very clear: the previous government’s active support for infrastructure privatization is destined to continue and may even expand under the Liberals. For those voters who liked the Liberal Party’s widely cited campaign promise of '$120-billion in infrastructure investments over 10 years', privatization was not an obvious part of the deal.

What's New: Why Toronto Needs a Low-Income Metropass Program

by Anders Marshall | August 2, 2016

When many Torontonians think of poverty, the first issues that come to mind are housing and food. Mobility is often overlooked, creating a gap in accessibility and services available to those looking to get around the city. Grassroots organization TTCriders has established the Fair Fare Coalition in an attempt to fill that gap. Last month, members attended City Hall to push for lower TTC prices for the city’s lowest income residents.
