WAM Conference, September 14

The Workers’ Action Movement conference held on September 14 at the OPSEU Toronto Region Membership Centre was a success. It was very upbeat and forward looking. WAM united allies in the fight for a more democratic and militant labour movement, starting with efforts to field a WAM team for top Ontario Federation of Labour positions to be elected at the OFL Convention in November.

The 25+ people who participated in one or more sessions at the Conference represented and voiced workers’ priorities in OPSEU, CUPE, UNIFOR, Sheet Metal Workers’ Union, CUPW, OSSTF and AMAPCEO, as well as social justice groups like ACORN and OCAP.
