Enough is Enough Campaign

The Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) has launched a campaign called “Enough is Enough,” which involves a Province-Wide Day of Action on Saturday, June 3rd.

Comme vous le savez, la Fédération du travail de l’Ontario (FTO) a lancé une campagne intitulée « Assez, c’est assez », qui comprend une journée d’action à l’échelle de la province le samedi 3 juin.

The campaign has five demands and you can learn more about the campaign here: LINK

• Real Wage Increases
• Keep Schools and Health Care Public
• Affordable Groceries, Gas and Basic Goods
• Rent Control and Affordable Housing
• Make the Banks and Corporations Pay

In response, the Waterloo Region Labour Council will be hosting an Enough is Enough Expo. A family-friendly and non-partisan event, we are inviting progressive community organizations, charities, social justice minded groups, coalitions, neighborhood associations, and unions from across the entire region to host an information booth from 10:00 – 11:30 AM at Carl Zehr Square at Kitchener City Hall.

En réponse, le Conseil du travail de la région de Waterloo organisera une exposition Assez c’est assez. Un événement familial et non partisan, nous invitons les organismes communautaires progressistes, les organismes de bienfaisance, les groupes soucieux de la justice sociale, les coalitions, les associations de quartier et les syndicats de toute la région à tenir un kiosque d’information de 10h00 à 11h30 à la place Carl Zehr de l’hôtel de ville de Kitchener.

We may not able to change the hours of our general membership meeting as not everyone would get the message and our members are used to a 10:00am time. We’ll review if we can change it to 9 or 9:30 so we can be at the event.

I aim to keep this meeting very short and encourage all of our members to attend this event. In fact, I may be conducting our meeting remotely at this location, at City Hall. Since the meeting is on Zoom, you too can be on your cell phones and in attendance at the event. We can choose to table reports to the following meeting if needed.
