CANADA-WIDE LABOUR DAY EVENTS

Not near Toronto? The Canadian Labour Congress has put together a comprehensive list of Labour Day events across Canada. 

Note: Ongoing Labour Dispute at CNE

The hard-working members of IATSE Local 58 at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto are currently locked out by their employer.

If the lock out of IATSE Local 58 is still ongoing as of Labour Day (please check out IATSE Local 58's Facebook page for updates), we will be asking our members to respect the workers by not crossing the picket line

Send a message to Toronto Mayor John Tory to resolve the labour dispute now: https://t.co/jTFp3B2Z1I

Want to learn more about how to bring the Fight for $15 & Fairness to your union and workplace?

Join us at the Toronto-wide organizing meeting on September 11th, where we'll be hosting a union members' caucus. It will be a chance to share tips and learn more about organizing for $15 & Fairness. You'll go home with all the tools you need to build up this campaign in your union.

We're ramping up the Fight for $15 & Fairness and we need your help. We are the people that Premier Doug Ford says he represents, and we say: "Hands off the $15 minimum wage and fair labour laws!"
