CCU Documentary – The Voice of Independent Unions in Canada

The 47-minute documentary, called The Voice for Independent Unions in Canada, illustrates the CCU’s dedication to the establishment of a democratic, independent labour movement, its newfound working relationship with the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC), and its commitment to growth and renewal.

The documentary also focuses on the struggles of labour activists inside the CCU, its proud history, its work with social justice activists in Canada and around the globe, and the new economic challenges of wage stagnation and growing inequality.

The documentary has been selected to play at the Canadian Labour International Film Festival (CLIFF) in Toronto on Saturday, November 15.

The documentary will be submitted to over 50 film and documentary festivals in Canada and around the world in 2014 and 2015, including the Sundance Film Festival and the Toronto Hot Docs Festival.
