Petition to the Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour

Whereas:
  • A free press is vital to a free democracy;
  • Journalistic integrity is vital to a free press; and
  • Unifor has announced it will infringe on the journalistic integrity of its media members for political purposes.
We, the undersigned, citizens and Residents of Canada, call upon the Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour to:
(a) de-register Unifor; and
(b) allow the Media sector of Unifor to register as an independent union or choose another union that will not infringe on its members' professional integrity.
