Rossi to March in Labour Day Parade

Consensus Building Candidate to Mark Labour's Big Day by Marching Alongside Local 793 of the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE)

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 2, 2010) - Toronto mayoral candidate Rocco Rossi will participate in Monday's Labour Day Parade by marching alongside members of Local 793 of the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE), a major North American construction union with thousands of members in the Toronto area which has already endorsed Mr. Rossi for mayor in the October 25th election.

"I am looking forward to marching alongside the highly skilled members of Local 793," said Rossi. "As your mayor, my goal will be a Toronto where labour business and City Hall work together to maintain high quality jobs and investment in the city."

"Mr. Rossi is without a doubt the best candidate for mayor and I firmly believe he will get the city moving again," said Local 793 business manager Mike Gallagher. "We're pleased to mark Labour Day with such a consensus builder."

Rossi becomes only the second major mayoral candidate to confirm his participation in Monday's parade.

Local 793 of the International Union of Operating Engineers represents thousands of highly-skilled crane and heavy equipment operators in the Toronto area. The union has a head office, banquet hall and training campus in Oakville, and another training campus in Morrisburg, Ontario.
