In the Community

Greetings,                                

Please join the Sudbury and District Labour Council for a labour canvass on Wednesday, October 9th at 5:30 p.m.

Hello Fellow Activists!

With the federal election just around the corner, NDP candidates in our community are in for a fight to the end.  As chair as the Political Action Committee, I'm reaching out to any and all members who can donate some time to help support Beth Mairs and the federal NDP in Sudbury.  I for one am tired of politicians who only show up for cheque presentations and ribbon cuttings.  Beth is ready to put workers first.  

The following message is from your Political Action Committee:

 Together with the Sudbury District Labour Council, a protest has been organized on Thursday, Oct 3  at 5 pm. (Outside Verdicciho's Resturant - on public property).  Doug Ford has organized a $600/plate fundraiser for the Conservative Party, and it's time we welcomed Mr. Ford to our community.  

The Town Hall Meeting with Jagmeet Singh here at the Steelworkers Hall was very well attended.  See video here.    https://youtu.be/zRupRezOKS4

Rich Duthie uses the 1958 and 1978-79 Inco strikes as backdrop to 'explore the past' as part of his dissertation.

There's a lot of anniversaries intersecting right now when it comes to Greater Sudbury's mining labour history.

The 60th anniversary of the 87-day-long 1958 Mine Mill-Inco strike was last year. The 40th anniversary of the end of the nine-month-long 1978-79 USW-Inco strike is this month.
