Underway Now! OFL Delegates Adjourn Early to Support Occupy Toronto

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 23, 2011) - Delegates at the OFL Convention have just voted to adjourn until later this afternoon to give support to Occupy Toronto protesters. A first arrest has just been made and union members are concerned about any infringements of democratic rights.

OFL President Sid Ryan will lead the peaceful march. The labour movement will leave 30 observers in place at the Occupy site to ensure that no human rights violations take place.
