SAULT STE MARIE, ON, Sept. 15, 2011 /CNW/ - CAW National President Ken
Lewenza will deliver a pre-election rallying speech to CAW members in
the Sault Ste Marie area this evening, at a meeting to plan and execute
the union's Ontario election strategy.
The CAW is encouraging members to defeat the threat of a possible Tim
Hudak Conservative government, which the CAW believes would have a
hugely detrimental impact on workers, the economy and important public
services like health care and education as well as the future of good,
sustainable jobs in the province.
