Unifor

Just recently CBJ met with Dias again, three
years after our first discussion. What is immedi-
ately noticeable upon seeing him in person for the
second time is that his enthusiasm, passion and
commitment to furthering the union’s mandate
are every bit as robust as when he initially took the
reins.
“I thought I was energized three years ago,
but I’m more energized today than I was when
we founded Unifor,” Dias smiles broadly. “We will
continue to fight until we have achieved social
and economic justice, not just for our members
but for our communities as well.”

Touching on 315,000 members nationwide,
Unifor has a notable presence in every major
sector of the economy, including everything
from manufacturing and media to forestry and
fishing. Unifor was created to challenge the
labour movement; to challenge politicians and
“We will continue to fight until
we have achieved social and
economic justice, not just
for our members but for our
communities as well.”
– Jerry Dias, President, Unifor
Strengthening the labour movement was really Step 1 in the overall process of changing the politics
of Canada, according to Unifor President Jerry Dias.
