In Canada, unions do not bargain for healthcare. Healthcare is Off the Table. When Canadian workers go on strike, or are locked out, they donʼt lose their health coverage.

Hear US and Canadian rank and file workers, leading officials from the USW and UE and doctors from Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) explain how Canadian style Medicare is able to cover everyone in the US without co-pays, deductibles or premiums.

Just 23 minutes long, this video helps U.S. unionists understand how HR 676, the “Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act” would cover everyone for healthcare and take healthcare Off the Table in the U.S.


If your local or group would like a physician in support of Single Payer to speak after your screening we can help put you in contact with one.
