To date, Hurricane Matthew has taken a major death toll in Haiti (the exact numbers were not known at the time this was written) and the situation looks dire for this island and many neighboring countries of the Greater Antilles.

Labour Day is more than just a day off. It is, first and foremost, a time to reflect on the big union battles waged before our time… and those that we are still fighting today.
Teamsters Canada has been advocating for concrete action in the field for decades now. I’ve always believed we have to adopt significant measures and take strong action to get positive results for our members and for all Canadians.
