Join Council of Canadians Honorary Chairperson Maude Barlow and Board Member and unionist Fred Wilson for the launch of his timely new book A New Kind of Union: Unifor and the Birth of the Modern Canadian Union. Fred played a key organizing and planning role in the New Union Project, which culminated in the creation of Unifor. In this new book, he offers a riveting insider’s account of the unique process that created the union and motivated its actions.
This event is free and the venue is accessible. Light refreshments will be available.
This book is a timely and urgent call for a wider social solidarity to counter the efforts of right wing populists who are seeking to exploit the frustrations of working people and to impose their intolerant and regressive agenda on us all.
