OTTAWA – "The photos of the factory building collapse in Bangladesh tell the story of corporate greed run amuck, says Dave Coles, president of Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada. "This criminal disaster is the direct result of unregulated, free-market capitalism."
Coles says even the most basic of International Labour Organization standards have been violated and the retailers responsible should be condemned in the harshest terms and brought to swift justice."

The national telecommunications workers unions from Mexico, United States and Canada- the Sindicato de Telefonistas de la Repbúlica Mxicana (STRM), the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and the Communications Energy and Paperworkers Union (CEP)- working in a tri-national alliance join together today, International Women's Day, to express our common commitment to the fundamental rights of women- as workers and as social actors in the construction of a society based on respect and equality.
MEXICO CITY – Canada’s largest telecommunications union has organized a tri-national conference of telecom unions that begins today in Mexico City to work on strategies for reversing what Dave Coles says is “growing job insecurity and poor working conditions faced by telco workers in North America.”
Canadian unions, led by the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC), met with the Mexican Embassy in Ottawa, on February 14, 2013, to express grave concerns about Mexico’s ongoing and flagrant violations of international labour rights and standards.
CEP is proud to join other North American unions and worker rights supporters who are working together to defend the independent Mexican unions and support labor rights in Mexico during the week-long international Days of Action from February 18-24.
