Our Workers Solidarity Committee supports workers in struggle, including unionized and non-unionized workers. This includes organizing a Workers’ Action Centre and a local campaign to raise the minimum wage in Nova Scotia to $15/hour.
For workers who are on strike or lock-out, the Workers Solidarity Committee helps produce public solidarity statements and helps coordinate support for picket lines and union rallies. The Workers Solidarity Committee can also be a resource for those who are interested in organizing their workplace.
