RALLY FOR A STAY-HOME STRIKE TO SECURE FULL COMPENSATION FOR ALL AFFECTED BY THE COVID-19 CRISIS

Fight Capitalism!
Workers of the World and Oppressed Peoples Unite!

Toronto Education Workers/CUPE4400 and the newly formed Labour May Day Committee have decided to take the lead on organizing a May Day rally in Toronto on Friday, May 1st, 2020. The International Day of the Worker, also known as May Day, is a holiday celebrated by hundreds of millions around the world in commemoration of the workers who died in the struggle for the eight hour work day.

Last year we successfully organized this historic day of international workers’ solidarity with significant involvement from the labour movement. We intend to strengthen this tradition going forward. Please let us know if your organization would like to join the Labour May Day Committee and make this rally a success.

Tentative Plan:
5:00 p.m., Friday May 1
The rally will go on—online or otherwise. Details TBD. Follow @LabourMay1 (Twitter) or bit.ly/2VPQwMy (Facebook) for updates.

If you want a representative to speak and to endorse the event, contact this page or the Labour May Day Committee on Facebook. You can also call/text 416-320-0080 or email bruno.petraglia@cupe4400.org and he will add you.
