IATSE ’s “Why Unions Still Matter” Roadshow for Canadian Members

The Canadian Office began working with the Labour Department of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario to Canadianize the “Why Unions Still Matter” Roadshow. After a few months, a trial run was ready and was presented by Professor Wayne Lewchuk to Canadian staff at the annual IATSE Staff Training session in April. Staff provided input at that session and changes were made to the presentation. The first official roadshow in Canada was rolled out on June 19 in Hamilton, and like all others, was also open to friends, family members, and even members of other unions. Thanks to Locals 129, 828, and B173 for hosting, with a special thanks to Local 129 for making all the arrangements.
