Local 79 sends delegation to Ontario NDP Convention

For the first time since Local 79 members voted at the May 2015 General Membership Meeting to affiliate with the New Democratic Party, a delegation of 17 Local 79 members participated in the 2017 Ontario NDP Convention.
Our delegation watched as the Ontario NDP launched a ‘Vision for Ontario’ that promised new money for health care, education, public transit and social services, a $15 minimum wage, lower hydro bills, and more affordable housing.
It’s a vision that stands in stark contrast to the Ontario Liberals’ approach, which has failed to properly address poverty and inequality in Ontario, and done too little too late to ease the rapid rise in the cost of living.
