OFL & CLC Team Up to Take on the 2015 Federal Election

 

Sisters and Brothers,

Working people in Canada are facing some of the most difficult challenges in history but 2015 marks a pivotal year of opportunity as well. With a federal election guaranteed to take place no later than October 19, 2015, the CLC and OFL have teamed up with local labour councils to host a series of Election Preparation Conferences across Ontario.

Register now for the free skills-building workshop in your region and help ensure that retirement security, good jobs, child care, health care, and workers’ rights are priorities in the next federal election.

Our plan is to bring together seasoned campaigners and new activists from a wide range of communities and workplaces to share the experience they have while learning the latest and best practices for effective campaigning – from outreach and training to social media. Our goal is to show union members how to mobilize their workplaces and communities to bring out the vote against the negative and powerful politics of greed.

Register the people in your union who can build, lead and deliver a winning campaign need to be at this conference – leaders, community campaigners, organizers and communicators; women and men, young and old; workers of colour, with disabilities, Aboriginal, LGBTQ; public sector and private sector; full-time, part-time or retired union members.

Together, we defeated Tim Hudak in the 2014 Ontario Elections … and we can do it again!

I look forward to working with you to make Canada work for everyone!

In solidarity,

Sid Ryan
