“Some workers contacted by CBC News who weren't being paid for missed shifts did not want to speak publicly, fearing repercussions from their employers” @CBCNL @NLFL_labour
No worker should live in fear of speaking the truth #fairnessnl @GovNL @AESL_GovNL https://t.co/IK7PVqcs7k
‘We Are NL’ is a campaign launched by Common Front NL, a broad based coalition of labour, social justice and community groups representing over 100,000 Newfoundlander’s and Labradorians. Together we represent the majority in our province who believe that despite the current fiscal situation, we can and we must have an economy that works for everyone, leaving no one behind.
We have united because we are deeply concerned about the future of our province in light of the current economic downturn. We believe that our province’s response must be a measured, well thought out, strategic and long term plan. It cannot be a knee jerk reaction in the form of massive cuts to the public sector – which cause private sector employment to decline, take money out of the economy, at the worst possible time, and also have a disproportionate impact on our most vulnerable. We can grow our economy and ensure future prosperity by investing in strong public services, like education, health care and childcare.
We can ensure economic and social prosperity by investing in public services, infrastructure, the social safety net and the arts, while implementing policies that also support rural NL. Further, through economic diversification and a fair progressive tax structure we believe it is possible to support our economy, our families and our communities in a way that helps us weather this current, temporary downturn.
Common Front NL believes that the fastest route back to economic prosperity is to invest in our greatest resource – our people!
