In this article, the writer argues that Canadian workers and Canadian unions should use their knowledge of the "front-line" of the workplace to act as advocates calling for more generous benefits packages and for greater employment flexibility for men and especially women seeking to "marry" work life with personal life. The writer maintains that training, vacation time, rewards for performance and working mother's issues should be discussed by the unions and workers with management.
From the Paper:"In particular, the paper argues that comprehensive training, appropriate "time off", ample reward for those who perform admirably in their position, a strict adherence to the health concerns of employees, and recognition that being a mother demands special concessions on the part of the organization are all things which unions and workers should take up with senior management during collective bargaining as well as on other occasions."
