Unifor was created to meet the challenge of corporate globalization that places corporate rights and profits before workers, communities and the environment. In every sector and in almost every workplace, UNIFOR members are directly affected by global corporations and decisions and global economic and social circumstances. To fulfill Unifor’s goals and objectives and to effectively represent our members and protect and improve our collective agreements and living standards, Unifor must be active on the international stage.
Globalization represents the internationalization of capital. Global solidarity represents the engagement of organized labour as a counter balancing and progressive force in a globalized world.
