TORONTO, Sept. 1 /CNW/ - Joining with working people across the country,
the CAW will be leading this year's Labour Day celebrations in Toronto, with
the theme of Manufacturing Matters, building on community actions over the
last six months.
Only days after the shocking announcement of 1,200 more layoffs by
General Motors in Oshawa, hundreds of CAW members will march to highlight the
ongoing loss of manufacturing jobs as the union gears up for the second phase
of its national Manufacturing Matters campaign.
Prior to the 10 a.m. kick off, speeches will take place at Nathan
Phillips Square (100 Queen Street West) at 9:10 a.m.
