The June 2022 Issue of The Canadian Sailor discusses the ongoing negotiations underway for varying units, a renewed threat against Canadian cabotage and SIU of Canada President Jim Given calls on the government to review the Coasting Trade Act to help address loopholes in the waiver system.
This Issue of the Canadian Sailor concludes another successful year on Canada's Great Lakes and Waterways for Members of the SIU of Canada. We wish all Members of the SIU of Canada a happy and healthy Holiday season.
The September 2021 issue of The Canadian Sailor highlights the current shortage of available seafarers in the industry, how the Union plans on working with the newly elected government, the inner workings of collective bargaining, and further updates from the SIU staff on what we’ve been working on lately.
The June 2021 Issue of The Sailor focuses on the importance of Canadian Cabotage Law and the Coasting Trade Act, the pillars of what makes the Canadian seafaring industry great, and how critical it is to the supply chain. Without cabotage, our industry would be at the mercy of foreign shipowners and operators.
