Drive To Work Caravan Travelling to Woodstock, Ingersoll and Sarnia June 17, 18

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 16, 2009) - The Ontario Federation of Labour's Drive To Work province-wide tour is headed to Woodstock, Ingersoll and Sarnia on June 17th and 18th. The Caravan is travelling 3,000 km to over 50 cities in Ontario to find out how the recession is really affecting working people.

"It seems like the people and communities who have suffered the most during this recession have not had their voices heard," said Wayne Samuelson, OFL President. "The thousands of people who have been put out of work by the global financial meltdown have seen every corner of their lives affected."

The OFL, affiliated unions, anti-poverty groups, and many community allies have joined together on the Drive To Work Caravan so people can have their say.
