Greetings Sisters and Brothers

I hope you are enjoying some time off the job. Enjoying time to do whatever it is that is important to you. Spending more time with your family and loved ones. Taking a trip or just a rest from work. I hope all is well.

There are certainly many issues we as workers are facing, not only this hot humid weather, but also this hot & heavy climate we are in with our Provincial & Federal Governments. From Austerity measures to these ongoing imbalanced trade agreements, almost in secrecy this Harper Government functions.

CAW National has met with all three major political parties in Ottawa regarding the need for a National Auto Policy. All were in agreement for the need for such a policy. CAW National President Ken Lewenza held Town Hall meetings at various Locals across southern Ontario prior to this trip to Ottawa.

The outreach was for the Communities at large. The importance of the Auto Industry and the positive effects it has on the Community as a whole. I would also like to thank everyone who took the time to sign the Good Jobs Pledge Petition. The Auto Industry is paramount to Canada, Canadians & obviously our economy.

Auto produces twice as many direct jobs supporting the community services such as Health Care, Education, and Social Services. Autoworkers also support the United Way, Food Banks, and Womenís Shelters. Municipal taxes paid through home ownership of Autoworkers are an estimated $468 million.

LABOUR DAY I hope to see you Sept 3rd, Hamilton, Locke & York Street, 10am for the parade then back to Dundurn Park for a BBQ. Remember, Fighting Back Makes a Difference. Right now the Working Class is in the Fight of Their Life.
