KINGSTON, ON, April 27, 2015 /CNW/ - The president of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) will join Kingston and area labour leaders and local dignitaries on April 28 at a National Day of Mourning remembrance event for workers killed or injured on the job.

Warren (Smokey) Thomas, a native of Kingston, will participate in the ceremony at Kingston City Hall starting at 11:30.
