Canadian Labour Congress Lobby

The Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) organizes an annual lobby day with Members of Parliament (MPs), which the CFNU participates in as an affiliated organization. CLC lobby days focus on several issues, with the aim of influencing decision-makers to take concrete action to advance the socio-economic well-being of its members and all working people.

CLC Lobby, February 6, 2018

The most recent Lobby Day organized by the CLC addressed four priority issues:

  • Universal Prescription Drug Plan (aplanforeveryone.ca)
  • Proactive Pay Equity Legislation
  • Put Pensions First in Bankruptcy
  • Employment Insurance That Works

More than 250 people from across Canada and various unions participated in the Lobby Day, and 12 nurses’ union leaders formed the CFNU delegation. Together, they met with more than 100 legislators to share their views.
