Unifor organizes forest industry rallies in Quebec to raise questions of province on upcoming strategy to stop decline of caribou; union says forestry workers should be included in dialogue to help find long-term sustainable solution

March 22, 2023 (press release) –

"We are marching today because there is a lot of uncertainty about the plan that the government wants to put in place,” said Daniel Cloutier, Unifor Quebec Director.

“It is not normal that forestry workers are excluded from the elaboration of solutions for the woodland caribou. We must hold a real social dialogue and find a long-term sustainable solution.”

The union is asking for a plan that will allow help with the economy in the affected areas, maintaining good jobs and support for workers affected by the forestry cuts.

“We don't want to be faced with a done deal," said Cloutier. “This is an issue related to climate change.”

Unifor is requesting meetings with the Quebec government but is getting little information on the discussions underway.

Another rally is planned for April 4 at 11:30 a.m. in front of the National Assembly in Quebec City and Unifor invites all its members, as well as the public and other unions to join this event.
