On April 8, 2021, the Good Jobs for All Coalition joined with 75 community and labour organizations from across Canada in signing on to a brief to the HUMA Parliamentary Committee for its study of EI. The brief “Employment Insurance for the 21st Century: How Do We Make E.I. Work for Workers?” was submitted by the Inter-provincial EI Working Group and makes 15 recommendations focused on:
- Better EI Financing,
- Better EI Access for More Workers,
- Better EI Benefits and
- Better Supports and Access to Justice for EI Claimants.
On April 22, Pam Frache of the Workers Action Centre spoke to the brief during the HUMA hearings (15:43:22 time mark).
