Precarious Work, Kincardine Information Picket


January 2018 Grey Bruce Labour Council Regular Meeting and Executive Meeting, OPSEU Office, Owen Sound

Regular Meeting: 7 PM

Executive Meeting: 4:30 PM

Due to a scheduling error, we are unable to meet at UNIFOR Centre in Port Elgin on Monday January 22nd. I assure you this is not due to the recent events with the CLC and UNIFOR.

The Grey Bruce Labour Council has a 61 year history of working with all affiliates and friends of Labour and our Affiliates. In the context of the very sad news that Unifor has disaffiliated from the CLC the Grey Bruce Labour Council looks forward to the time, hopefully in the near future, when our house of labour will again be united. To do all that is possible to keep this pathway to reconciliation open the Grey Bruce Labour Council invites all Unifor locals to continue to be active in the Grey Bruce Labour Council as honored friends and guests. We look forward to working with the Unifor Family Education Centre to continue our long term relationship and to continue to meet as Labour Council in this wonderful centre that has done so much for Labour again in April.

Grey Bruce Labour Council and Friends Support Tim Horton’s Worker. Thank to all those that attended and our media friends.

The Grey Bruce Labour Council and friends at the information picket at the downtown Kincardine ON Tim Horton’s. The low wage economy model does not work for anyone and ensuring that workers such as those at Tim Horton’s are treated with respect is a key part of this. Making unionization of the service and all sectors more accessible is what unlocks the door to prosperity.  Workers and owners solving their issues in a two party collectively bargained agreement is a Charter Right.
