CLAC offers a workplace wellness program to members who have negotiated it in their collective agreement. The program was created in BC in 2009 and is slowly expanding in other provinces where CLAC represents workers.  For 25 years, CLAC has provided financial assistance to workers around the world through its Indigenous Solidaires, which are made up of CLAC members who are not directly represented by the union, but who believe in the work it does. The CLAC Foundation has expanded efforts and capacity to assist fighting workers and their families. From now on, CLAC, its members, signatory companies and the general public can make donations for various purposes through the Foundation. Projects include training artisans in areas affected by natural disasters, supporting the China Labour Bulletin, helping workers in Canada prepare for reintegration into the labour market, and raising awareness of issues affecting workers around the world. CLAC is seen by international trade organisations as a threat to trade unions and as a threat to collective action on behalf of workers. Unions often claim that the CLAC is a union of companies and that many of its provisions are company-oriented and misleading to workers.  CLAC then takes the position that the “traditional” unions are responsible for the attacks on themselves.  In 1954, CLAC applied for certifications in British Columbia (BC) and Ontario. The BC Labour Relations Board granted certification to a CLAC resident, but the Ontario Labour Relations Board refused the certification due to a technical peculiarity. However, the Council expressed concern that CLAC is based on Christian principles and believes that it would discriminate against non-Christian workers.  Health care and social benefits cover needs such as vision, dentistry and prescription drugs. life and death insurance by accident and dismemberment; and a staff and family assistance programme to help with personal difficulties. Coverage rates vary between collective agreements.  When negotiating salaries and benefits for its members, the CLAC takes into account the “economic viability of the company”. The association supports the open store as an expression of the principle of free association and as a balance between individual and collective interests….
