May 1 Day of Action

April 27, 2022

Dear friends,

On Sunday, May 1, join the province-wide day of action for a better Ontario.  London will join this day of action to mobilize people in the fight for a better future and to defeat the Ford Government on June 2. 

May 1, or May Day, is the traditional workers’ holiday, a day when working people celebrate the gains they have won over the years and commit to fighting for a better future for everyone. In London on May 1, we are holding a Tolpuddle Award Event in the Peace Park at 1100am at which we will honour a long time labour activist and then we will have a rally in Victoria Park NW corner at 1230pm, with a number of inspiring speakers.  Following the rally, at 200pm we will proceed in a car caravan to Kitchener-Waterloo to a Carnival of Resistance which will include Juno Award winning performers and a range of family friendly events.

Please circulate this notice widely to your members, friends and the broader community and encourage them to attend.

It’s time for a $20 minimum wage, decent work, affordable housing, paid sick days, well-funded public services, livable income support for all, climate justice, status for all, and an end to racism and oppression.

See you on Sunday!

In solidarity,
Patti Dalton
President London and District Labour Council
