United Steelworkers Slam Trudeau

“Why would we choose Justin Trudeau when he doesn’t choose us.”

The United Steelworkers, one of Canada’s biggest unions, is slamming the Trudeau Liberals in a new ad.

While Trudeau has tried to pretend he’s a supporter of steelworkers, the reality is exactly the opposite.

In the ad, the steelworkers rip Trudeau’s record, and urge support for the NDP:

“Why would we choose Justin Trudeau when he doesn’t choose us. There’s only one party that puts working-class people first — Jagmeet Singh and the NDP,”

In an interview, United Steelworkers Executive Mark Rowlinson said didn’t hold back, criticizing the government on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the European Union trade deal, and Canada-US trade.

Trudeau was also slammed over his refusal to protect the pensions of workers:

“Our members, whether they are in the steel sector or other sectors, their pensions and their benefits are at risk if their companies should face insolvency. We think that is fundamentally unfair and disappointed that the government hasn’t done anything to address that issue.”

According to Rowlinson, the ads will run in the key industrial areas of Hamilton & southwestern Ontario.

The report on the United Steelworkers anti-Trudeau campaign comes after Trudeau got a negative reception at a Labour Day rally, being booed and chanted down by many attendees.

Trudeau also betrayed Canadian Steelworkers when allowed Chinese steel to be used for upcoming LNG projects in BC, which will cost tens of thousands of Canadian jobs.
