The Immigrant Workers’ Centre presents the story of a Filipino machinist who came to Canada through the temporary foreign worker (TFW) program.
His identity is confidential due to the precarity of his status and the threat of retribution by employers.
He agreed to share his story with us, from working as a machinist in a “free trade” (militarized) zone in the Philippines with a “no unions, no strikes” policy, to working as a TFW during the graveyard shift at an aerospace factory just outside of Montreal.
This is the first in a series of migrant workers’ life stories.
