Abstract: The UNITED ELECTRICAL, RADIO & MACHINE WORKERS UNION (UE) has commissioned and made available a report entitled, Understanding Inflation, by E.G. Adams as a contribution to public discussion of the two most important problems facing Canadians today - unemployment and inflation. UE gives first priority to the former while arging that government policy is almost wholly concerned about the latter.
In 1981, UE commissioned a study of inflation to better prepare its challenge to government and business economic policies. This 93 page report published in November, 1982, is meant to aid in the general understanding of inflation today. UE outlines the causes of the continuous decline in economic activity and details a two-pronged line of attack on enemployment and inflation.
In April, 1983, UE sponsored a conference for its members to further outline the current dilemma and their proposed strategies for change. The opening address, titled "The Economy", has been printed and is availabe from the UE office. The paper brielfly names the causes of the current depression and outlines the tactics for an alternaitve economic strategy for the country.
Issues of economic strategy and policy regularly appear in the Union' be-weekly newspaper, UE News, as well as their monthly publication, UE Facts and Comment.
This organization no longer exists.
