> Unifor Policy Statement: Unifor is Canada’s largest private sector union, with more than 300,000 members across the country, working in every major sector of the Canadian economy. On Nov. 29, 2013 in Toronto, Unifor released a report and policy paper calling for an overhaul of Canada’s passenger rail system.

Unifor is proposing a new vision for passenger rail in Canada, in advance of the 2014/2015 federal budget. It is recommending consideration of two options: investment in high speed rail and increased spread, speed and frequency on the existing network.
