President's message

Dear Sisters and Brothers:

It is hard to believe that another summer has passed us by. Here we are, through Thanksgiving and headed into the holiday season. We have a number of initiatives and situations we feel compelled to make all of our members aware of.


Regional meetings to push back against the anti-worker political agenda

The OFL, CLC and local labour councils are hosting a series of  critical regional meetings to develop our collective capacity to push for fairness, and to push back against the low-wage, anti-worker political agenda. The meetings across Ontario are open to all local union leaders, executive board members, staff, stewards, committee members, retirees and activists. 

Find out more about meetings scheduled in your community.
