"Having access does not equal action," said Ken Neumann. "You've got to fight to get change."The candidates running to replace Yussuff agree the labour movement needs to remain closely aligned with the New Democrats.The Labour Forward slate of candidates condemned Yussuff for publicly supporting former Liberal finance minister Bill Morneau for a top position at the OECD.

Arscott is part of a slate of candidates who say they want to shake things up in the CLC by pushing the organization to confront systemic racism, skyrocketing real estate prices, stagnant wages and international human rights abuses.
