OFL's 60th Anniversary Convention speakers to take on issues of today and tomorrow

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 20, 2017) - For the last two years the labour movement has taken a lead role in ensuring that the historic review of Ontario's employment and labour laws does what is right for workers. This week, delegates are coming together under the theme "Power ON" to celebrate our wins and set the path of Ontario's labour movement for the years to come.

"We know that collective action is what wins gains for all of us," said Ontario Federation of Labour president Chris Buckley. "We also know that some of the most vulnerable workers in this province are workers of colour. As a labour movement we are working together to stop racism, bigotry, and Islamophobia on the streets and in the workplace, and ensuring that all Ontario workers have decent work."
