Labour Day 2013: In Solidarity!

Happy Labour Day Everybody! Monday is of course the big day, in this last long weekend of summer, the last day before most students and teachers return to school. I wish you all a good rest with family and friends, or even just relaxing by yourself enjoying the splendour of our Canadian summer!


Remember: None of these were achieved out of the goodness of the governments or businesses heart! We have had to fight hard for them all over the years!

Please don't forget to join in your local labour day march tomorrow! This year may be more important than ever. Not only are the government + corporate austerity measures stripping workers pay benefits and pensions, but this will also be an important province wide contract year for us too as teacher unionists. Don't forget, we are all in this together whether we recognize it or not. United we will stand! Divided we will fall!  Make sure everybody knows we are here! The Labour Day morning is a great chance to get back into the march and show your colours. As last year demonstrated, we will have a long hard challenging year ahead, make no mistake about it!

In solidarity!

PS: Hope to see you in the Toronto CNE march if you are down this way! Please wave or say hello! More likely you will recognize me, than I will most of you! :-)
