St. Thomas & District Labour Council – Labour Day Social


The St. Thomas and District Labour Council is excited to announce our first annual Labour Day get together.

WHEN: Monday, September 2, 2019 from 11am until 2pm.
WHERE: The Elgin Business Resource Centre, 300 Edgeware Road in St. Thomas

The council will be handing out free hotdogs and drinks to anyone wishing to come and take part. We have teamed up with the local Optimist Club which is providing their food trailer.

It’s important to give the current Ford government the message that we are not stopping our fight for the Ontario workers rights. We are hoping to grow our labour council into the strong entity that we know it can be and with all of your help we can do it.

The power of the people will prevail! We look forward to seeing you on Labour Day.

In Solidarity,
Executive members of the St. Thomas & District Labour Council
