Together for a Better New Brunswick

Learn More

Today, we live in a world where workers have assumed great importance. Some employers have started to realize the importance of workers, others, not so much. The employees too have started to realize the importance of the labour movement to protect their interests. Bosses around the world have recognized that the best way to resolve issues is by way of dialogue with unions.

The employees have realized that to protect themselves from exploitation, unity is very important. This is one of the reasons why unions and the labour movement have become so important today. That is why the NBFL is so important to ensure we do not have labour unrest in our province, and when we do, that we have a united front to any attack on our brothers and sisters!! That is why the NBFL is so important to me!
