Celebrating The First Virtual May Day Worldwide!

On Friday May 1, 2020 at 07:00 UTC, the world’s first global virtual May Day celebration will begin.  (That’s 08:00 in London and to see what time that is in your country, use this tool.)

This may be the most ambitious thing LabourStart has ever attempted.
Working together with the International Trade Union Confederation and all the global union federations, LabourStart is hosting a 12 hour long broadcast of videos and live events from trade unions around the globe.

All collected videos made especially for May Day from unions on every continent.
The event can be viewed at https://www.labourstart.org/mayday.

Over the next few days, we need your help to raise awareness of this incredible event.

• Please note the start time in your diaries and join us when you can, throughout the day.
• Please spread the word in your unions by email and on social media.
• If you have contacts in your local media (television, radio, newspapers, etc) please alert them to our press release and encourage them to cover the event.
• In some places, our event will be shown on local television stations — we encourage you to find many ways to share the event to the widest possible audience.

May Day is our international workers’ holiday — it will not be shut-down or locked-down.

Long live international workers’ solidarity!  Long live May Day!

IAM joins AIAC in Support of Canadian Aerospace

IAM members showed their support by distributing their pictures on Twitter, holding the sign which read #ISupportCdnAerospace.

The social media campaign is to generate public awareness of Canada’s aerospace industry in advance of AIAC’s report on the industry – “Vision 20/25 Beyond our Imagination”, released in May. The AIAC represents Canada’s aerospace companies, many of whom supported the IAM Aerospace Report, “Grounded Potential” which was released in early February of this year.

Both the IAM and AIAC share concerns about maintaining the 208,000 jobs in Canada’s Aerospace Industry which puts $28 billion in Canada’s economy each year. Both organizations are seeking continued government support of the industry at all levels.   Both are aware that within six years, more than 70,000 aerospace workers are eligible to retire and there isn’t the sufficient educational infrastructure in place to train their replacements and keep our industry competitive.
