April 28: Day of Mourning Ceremony

              FIGHT FOR THE LIVING, MOURN FOR THE DEADPlease join us on Saturday, April 28 at 4 PM at Museum Square, 466 Dundas St, Woodstock, ON N4S 1C4 as we gather to commemorate all workers killed or injured on the job at the annual Day of Mourning.

On this day, we remember and pay tribute to workers who die each year due to workplace causes. While we mourn the dead, we all must dedicate ourselves to the continued fight for the living.

ORLC Affiliates Vote to keep Unifor Delegates as members

Unifor Executive (including Pres, Secretary and Treasurer) stepped aside to allow the CUPE First Vice-President to take control of the meeting while all  Unifor delegates left the room.
After an hour of debate, with the CLC rep present to ensure procedural adherence, the remaining affiliates of Oxford Regional Labour Council (OSSTF, OPSEU, USW, CUPE) passed a motion to “continue to recognize all Unifor Locals who are up to date and continue to pay per capita fees, as members and executives with full voice and vote until the Canadian Council of the CLC provides further direction.”

Solidarity is alive and well on the ORLC!

A rousing chorus of Solidarity Forever could be heard in the halls and I’m sure outside too 😉
