MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
The onset of a new year always comes with new expectations and new objectives to work towards. In our industry, in these times, it’s crucial to not give up on our goals. As our industry changes, we face threats ranging from diminished labour protections to more liberalized trade practices that can harm the integrity of our field.
We are not giving up. SIU staff and our members work tirelessly day in and day out to ensure our industry stays strong, and our Canadian jobs are protected. We may be navigating uncertain waters, but we are standing firm to ensure labour rights and fairness are upheld to the highest standards. We continue to advocate for our members and protect our Canadian maritime industry.
Thank you to all brothers and sisters for all of your hard work in 2017. I look forward to your continued support as we sail through 2018.
