Protect Canadian Workers
When companies shut down, they sell off assets and gut pensions to pay CEOs, creditors, and investors first. Young workers are left struggling to pay off debt and save for retirement.
It doesn’t have to be this way. The federal government can play a major role in protecting Canadian workers.
Sign if you want the government to:
Ensure that no Canadian retires in poverty.
Put workers and pensioners first in line, not last, when it comes to companies paying creditors.
- Work with Canada’s unions to preserve and expand defined-benefit pension plans.
