At the meeting we will be launching the Decent Work Election Toolkit to give you all the tools to fight for fair wages, decent hours, paid sick days, equal pay, and labour laws that protect everyone. With only three weeks before Election Day on June 2nd, let's crank up our election organizing so we can send as many decent work champions to Queen’s Park as possible.

Canada-wide: Building the solidarity dividend 

The Ontario Federation of Labour and the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists Canada are pleased to present: Building the Solidarity Dividend: A Conversation with Heather McGee.

A renowned expert on the American economy, Heather McGhee is one of the most brilliant and influential thinkers exploring inequality today. Both her viral TED talk and her instant New York Times bestseller The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together reveal the devastating true cost of racism—not just for people of colour, but for everyone. Deeply stirring, intelligent, and compassionate, McGhee’s vision offers an actionable roadmap during one of the most critical—and most troubled—periods in history.
