Unifor welcomes the opportunity to make a submission to New Brunswick’s consultation on domestic, intimate partner or sexual violence leave legislation (Bill 44). We are Canada's largest union in the private sector with 315,000 members in every sector of the economy. We have particular expertise to offer to this consultation. Both our founding unions, CEP and CAW, have a long history of addressing domestic violence. In particular, we’ve been bargaining paid domestic violence leave into our collective agreements for over 25 years.
