United we are stronger.

As Canadian workers we rely on our pensions and benefits so we can live and retire with dignity.
So with Canada’s inadequate bankruptcy laws allow failing corporations to take the money intended for our pensions and benefits, and use it to pay off CEOs, banks and investors instead.
We need to stop corporations from putting shareholders, banks and creditors ahead of their employees when they file for bankruptcy.
Please sign.

Anything shown on this website can be viewed by anyone with an internet connection, anywhere in the world, and that includes spambots and data miners.
