Organizing lessons from Tim Hortons workers: 'Don't be afraid' 8.10.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Zaid Noorsumar About 45 Tim Hortons workers in Fort Frances, Ontario, banded together to form a union this past year, joining the United Food and Commercial Workers -- Canada's largest private sector union. The outlet is the only Tim Hortons in the small northern Ontario town of about 8,000 people.  "Job security was the number one factor why they decided to join UFCW," said Nathalie Vengal, an organizer with the union. Workers bargained annual wage increases, three days paid bereavement leave as well as seniority rights for scheduling and vacation time. Moreover, both full-time and part-time staff will be entitled to benefits. Vengal said that prior to unionization, access to benefits was restricted without a clear explanation of eligibility. The collective agreement language removed that ambiguity. Cross-generational allyship Many of the workers at the outlet are close to retirement age and sought job security and benefits.  Vengal said that the older employees found allyship among the younger cohort ...

Is John Horgan's government really building a better B.C.? 23.9.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Lizanne Foster In the classrooms at my school, students who get a $60,000 car for their 16th birthday sit next to students who walk an hour each day to and from school because bus fare is an unaffordable expense. Students who go home to their own bedrooms equipped with the latest technologies, collaborate on projects with students who don't have a bed to call their own. And students who struggle to read a sentence in the third language they've had to learn grasp desperately for meaning when their fluent peers speak.  The conceit of public schools is that our classrooms will somehow be the levelling space of these stark socio-economic differences through the provision of an equitable education. Teachers who spend an average of $1,600 on classroom supplies each year do so in the hope that the right resources will magically bridge the chasm between what is funded and what is needed.  Stories of families who have had to sell their homes in order to pay for learning supports for their children are ...
