Cliff Pilkey Awards Dinner – Nominations and Tickets
The Ontario Federation of Labour will host the 1st Biennial Cliff Pilkey Awards Dinner at the upcoming convention. The dinner will be held on the evening of Thursday, November 28, 2013 in the Grand Ballroom of the Sheraton Centre, 123 Queen Street West, Toronto.
As past president of the OFL, Cliff Pilkey’s contribution to the labour movement was enormous. He was a shrewd negotiator and a tough debater but he was also passionate and thoughtful. Cliff Pilkey was a labour leader who was way ahead of his time. He knew injustice when he saw it and he always stood true to his principles and he devoted his life to improving the lives of all working people and those who are the most in need. Those of us who had the privilege of working with Cliff are all better for having known him and his imprint of activism can still be felt across Ontario.
The OFL will present five awards at the dinner:
- Cliff Pilkey Labour Activist of the Year Award
- Olivia Chow Child Care Award
- Bob Borch Human Rights Award
- OFL Cultural Award
- OFL Young Worker Award
