The Retirees Chapter Executive and many members of the Chapter attended the STOP HUDAK meeting at the Hilton Hotel this past Thursday. The message that was passed on to the attendees was a dire one. We discussed at great length the plans Tim Hudak has for Ontario and for Ontario's Labour. We were informed of his union busting agenda and the horrible steps he will take to destroy workers rights and crush the working class of Ontario.
A province-wide campaign launched last month against Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak rolled into London with an urgent all-union meeting on Thursday night. Calling Hudak’s claim that he has shelved his anti-worker scheme a dishonest tactical maneuver, Ontario’s labour movement is forging ahead with plans to travel the province and expose Hudak’s hidden agenda.

Check event video and get involved with your local labour council in this urgent, all unions, all locals campaign.
