When Will Liberals Finally Treat Workers With The Respect They Deserve?

Mr. Speaker, United Steelworkers union local 2918 members at IMT Defence are proud to build the equipment Ukraine needs to defend itself against Putin's illegal invasion. However, the workers are underpaid and cannot afford food or rent. Despite receiving millions in taxpayer dollars and sky-high profits, their employer has not been treating these workers with the respect they deserve. They have been on strike since early June to demand fair wages. When will the Liberals finally stand up for Canadian workers and ensure tax dollars go to well-paying unionized jobs?
