KINGSTON, ON, April 6, 2016 /CNW/ - The president of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union will tour the main campus of St. Lawrence College on Thursday to continue his union's drive to organize part-time support staff at college campuses across Ontario.

Warren (Smokey) Thomas will hold a media availability at the start of the tour.


Thursday, April 7, 2016


10:30 a.m.


Steps outside of the main entrance,
St. Lawrence College, 100 Portsmouth Ave., Kingston

"In the past we've had problems with St. Lawrence College telling our organizers to get off the campus," Thomas said. "But based on my latest correspondence with President Glenn Vollebregt, I'm content that the college won't be interfering with this visit.

"I'm looking forward to speaking to many St. Lawrence College staff, full-time and part-time."
