All Together Now! campaign's national tour maps out road to fairness

It has been just over a year since the 2013 Convention where delegates of the National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) committed to taking the All Together Now! campaign to the road to find out how people are dealing with the effects of income inequality in their communities.

Federal government has a responsibility to mitigate income disparities, says OECD

While many income inequality deniers suggest that Canada is faring better than our neighbours to the south in the United States, a new study from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) says we're becoming a nation of increasing inequality.

Fairness Express visit to Walkerton, ON shines light on the value of public services


Few communities in Canada know just how dangerous it can be to privatize public services than Walkerton, Ontario. Fourteen years ago, the provincial government stopped monitoring water quality in the town and soon after, people started getting sick. Thousands were afflicted and seven died.

Who wouldn't want to get on this bus?

From Winnipeg, to Brandon, to The Pas and Flin Flon, the Fairness Express is making heads turn as it travels down the highway! The attention and interest is already causing quite a stir.

To help spread the word about our fight for a fairer Canada, the Manitoba team has put together a great promotional video to keep the buzz going!

Farewell to Ontario

After seven successful weeks and nearly 14,000 kilometres, the Fairness Express made its final Ontario tour stop in beautiful Kenora. For two exciting days the team on the big green bus engaged with local residents in the community’s downtown core and Anicinabe Park.

Talking strategy in Sioux Lookout

The small northern community of Sioux Lookout is a popular spot for fishing enthusiasts. The area is home to many rivers and lakes, and tourism is important for the local economy. The town is also home to a large Aboriginal community.

Fairness Express ready to cross the border into Manitoba

The torch, or in our case, the big green bus, is about to be passed on. The Fairness Express is less than a day away from crossing the border into Friendly Manitoba.

Spending time in Dryden

Graduating from a post-secondary institution is an important accomplishment. It is a rite of passage; it's a time to celebrate.

It can also be a time of great apprehension. After years of hard work and hours of study, new graduates find themselves confronted with the challenge of securing steady work and making their way in an increasingly unfriendly economy.

Opposition legislation shines spotlight on government inaction on tax havens

Legislation introduced by the federal NDP National Revenue critic, Murray Rankin, shows just how little is being done to prevent corporations from using tax havens to avoid paying taxes in Canada.

People are drawn to the big green bus. It is a curiosity.

Everywhere we go we are consistently approached by community members interested in the Fairness Express and its message about tax fairness, good jobs, public services, and labour rights.
