Bullet #1247: What Did Quebec Public-Sector Unions Achieve?

by Ashley Smith | April 15, 2016

After a wave of protests and job actions that culminated in Quebec's largest general strike in decades last December, public-sector unions have agreed to a series of contracts with disappointing concessions that raise questions about where the struggle in Quebec will go next.

: CAWLS 3rd Annual Conference

CAWLS 3rd Annual Conference will be held 1-2 June 2016, at the University of Calgary.

The Congress theme, “Energizing Communities” seeks to engage our collective interest in how communities are organized, how they respond to social change and how we build alliances with like-minded groups. In both the developed and developing worlds, “energizing communities” includes examining workers in the commodity sectors, the role of the environment within the class struggle, and how labour builds alliances with other groups, including Indigenous communities.

We invite you to look at those panels’ calls for papers:
* Strategies for Temporary Foreign Worker organizing
* Building Solidarity in Care Work
* Moving Beyond the Low Wage Economy: Strategies, Policies and Politics for Decent Work and Wages
* Fractures and Alliances Construction Work and Workers
