Moose Jaw & District Labour Council

The final long weekend of summer is just days away.

And while Moose Javians celebrate Labour Day in whatever way they see appropriate, Moose Jaw & District Labour Council (MJDLC) president Stacey Landin said she hopes people take a moment to remember the labour movement and what it has meant for Saskatchewan.

“We absolutely think it’s a day of recognition,” Landin said, adding labour unions have done a lot to improve wages, working conditions and on-the-job safety over the years.

According to Landin, the benefits of the labour movement have not only been evident in unionized jobs. She said many employers have recognized the benefits for which unions have fought, and have thus offered non-unionized employees similar benefits.
