LEEFF and Protecting Workers
In any bailout package to employers or industries, workers and their jobs must come first. The VDLC has written to the Minister of Transport and the Minister of Finance calling for exactly that in the case of the Large Employer Emergency Financing Facility (LEEFF) and Airport Authorities.
The letter is also endorsed by International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Local Lodge 16, MoveUP, PSAC Local 20221 (Union of Canadian Transportation Employees), and UNITE HERE Local 40.
