Taking to the streets for a Fair Future
The CLC is partnering with the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) to host a Street Party for a #FairFuture in the heart of the Financial District of downtown Toronto. The party will start at noon on Thursday, May 11 as part of the 2017 CLC Convention.
For Canada’s unions, a #FairFuture includes decent work, a $15 minimum wage and the right to join a union, but it also means challenging racism, Islamophobia and xenophobia, while championing equity, social justice, and a green economy.
There will be music, speakers, dancing and the CLC will provide signs, noisemakers, and popcorn as part of the festivities. The lunch period will be extended to allow delegates to participate and still have time for lunch before returning to the Convention.
We look forward to seeing everyone in the streets of Toronto!
