Union members gather at the Ex for "fight back" training
About 700 union activists have gathered today at Exhibition Place for "fight back" training. The members are learning how to help defeat what the event calls the "Harper/Hudak attack on workers' rights."
The all-day event was organized by the Toronto Labour Council and members of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union are taking part.
The event's flyer says participants will learn how to educate co-workers about the Tory "threat."
Unions are fighting a federal bill that requires extra financial reporting, and the provincial Conservatives' call for labour laws that would allow workers to opt out of joining a union.
