(TORONTO, ON) – The Ontario Federation of Labour will lead a rally to stop hate, build unity and fight for decent work, on November 22, in Toronto.
The rally for fairness, unity, and justice is part of the OFL 14th Biennial Convention. Community members are invited to join the rally and march, which will start in front of the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Toronto.
“You can’t have truly decent work without fairness and equity, and decent work is the foundation of strong, healthy and sustainable Ontario communities”, said OFL President Chris Buckley. “We must resist the rise of racism in our streets and in our workplaces. It’s time to calling on our government to implement fair wages, end racial discrimination, and ensure equity across the province for all workers.”
When: Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at 11:30 a.m.
Where: Meet in front of the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, 120 Queen St. W.
